Held before the Lafayette–Lehigh football game in November and after All-College Day in May, Midnight Breakfast is extremely popular. Up to 1,000 students are served by professors, administrators, staff, and coaches.
Celebrated each fall before a home football game, the annual Block pARTy showcases the arts on campus, with performances by campus dance teams, bands, and choral groups. Hundreds of people from the campus community attend, sampling food and checking out booths hosted by student organizations.
The 1,000 Nights formal is for first-year students only, signifying the roughly 1,000 more days until graduation. It was inspired by the 100 Nights formal held each spring for seniors that marks the number of days until Commencement.
No football game is more anticipated than the one against Lehigh, the most-played football rivalry in the nation. The game always sells out months in advance and has inspired a book and a documentary narrated by the late Harry Kalas. Activities often include a pep rally, class spirit competitions, concerts, and the Midnight Breakfast.
This formal dance at the beginning of the fall semester brings together students, alumni, trustees, faculty, and administrators for a sophisticated evening of live music and food.
Each year, students, faculty, staff, and alumni serve communities across the nation on the annual National Day of Service. Alumni chapters perform outreach in their areas too.
Singing of the Alma Mater
The longstanding College tradition of singing on the steps of Old Pardee has been revived by The Graduates, a choir of College alumni and goodwill ambassadors. Candle-carrying spectators walk to Pardee for a rousing singalong during Reunion Weekend.

- Eating Ice Cream In Winter Is Awesome December 3, 2013冬に食べるアイスもなかなかオツなモンだ Totally was a butt and named this blog after episode 38 of Gintama. For a good reason. Not only did I cosplay Gintama last weekend, but I have been eating food that is completely out of season. In my quest to feel a bit more at home–end of semester blues and what not, I […]Marlene First
