Mountain Day

“When is it going to be Mountain Day?!” is a refrain/demand I’m hearing from students these days.  As the month of September wanes and turns into October; after the success of the Quad Riot, people are wondering!  The first time we read of Mountain Day is in a diary of student in the Class of 1881.  In the early days of the College Mountain Day is an official holiday announced in the published  calendar!  The current tradition of it being announced at the discretion of the President started in the early 1920s. 

 So, when will the 2007 Mountain be??  With the fickly New England weather this season–your guess is as good as mine!
