Ivy Day 2010: Illumination Night

Ivy Day and Illumination Night are traditional parts of Smith's Commencement Weekend. On the day before commencement, alumnae escort the seniors in a parade around campus. Then the seniors plant ivy to symbolize the connection between the college and its graduates. On Illumination Night, the campus is lit only by colored paper lanterns.
