On Friday, Oct. 5, President Adam Falk cancelled classes, and the bells rang out “The Mountains,” signifying the start of Mountain Day 2012!
Students hiked over Mount Greylock, grabbed lunch at the all-campus picnic, joined an adventure race, enjoyed an evening polar bear swim.
Check out the complete schedule of events. and visit the Outing Club’s website for more information on activities throughout the year.
