Updates and Thoughts - 10/28/01
Tonight was Lantern Night, one of Bryn Mawr's traditions. Luckily, I was able
to get a ticket, so I made my way to Thomas Hall, where the ceremony was being
held. I had a ticket for the roof, so I had to climb through a window to get
there. I also tried to take photos, but I think things were so dark that it
was futile, despite the 1600 film I brought. After waiting a while, all the
lights in the building were turned off, and things were almost silent as the
frosh proceeded onto the courtyard. The songsmistresses chanted a song in Greek
as sophmore 'runners' ran and gave the frosh their traditional Bryn Mawr lanterns.
This year's class has red as it's class color, and consequently gets red lanterns;
my class color is dark blue (what a fun fact!). The songsmistresses led everyone
in another Greek song as the frosh proceeded off. Next is step sing, but I opted
out of that because I was cold and wanted to go back to my room.
