A Tasty Slice of College History

The campus community streamed through Blanchard on February 27 to share a cake in honor of Mary Lyon's 200th birthday. She was honored with a large chocolate and vanilla sheet-cake, made by dining services cooks, and decorated with chocolate College gates flanking Lyon's image. Her edible portrait was created by airbrushing blueberry stain onto white icing. Balloons wishing our founder a "Happy 200th" had to be custom made, since most birthday parties don't require imprinted balloons numbered higher than one hundred years.

Tee Time Anyone?

The class of 1999 officers display their current class T-shirt at a pizza party held to discuss possible slogans for a new class tee. Anyone with ideas should contact one of the class officers.
