Mountain Day

Today is Mountain Day!

Mountain Day is a surprise break from classes. The president chooses a beautiful fall day and announces the holiday by ringing the college bells. A picnic lunch provided by the college can be carried to the students' various outdoor activities on campus or to nearby parks. (See menu page for changes in the dining schedule.)

Classes and academic appointments scheduled before 7 p.m. are canceled on Mountain Day. Evening classes, films, lectures and other events will be held as planned.

Today, for Mountain Day 2008, the Staff Council will host the second ice cream and pie celebration for staff members. Hours for the event have been extended, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., outside Pierce Hall. Stop by for a piece of pie a la mode.

The first Mountain Day was held in 1877.
