Looking Back: December 2012

By the 1950s, a tradition had taken root on campus wherein each holiday season male students would travel from dorm to dorm singing Christmas carols. From what we can ascertain, the tradition seems to have continued until at least the 1970s. We’re not sure when this photo, which was culled from the College’s archives, was taken, but it looks to be at some point within that time frame. If you’re among the “merry gentlemen” pictured here or know someone who is, or even if you just have a tale you’d like to share about holidays past on campus, we’d love to hear from you.
