On Friday, oct. 11, the Williams community awoke to an email from President Maud S. Mandel, who wrote: “On a colorful Friday in fall / Nixing classes still takes some gall / But I woke up today / And said to myself: Hey / Let’s get out and go have a ball.” So began Mountain Day, with myriad opportunities to get outside, including a trek up Stone Hill behind The Clark (pictured), yoga on Chapin Lawn, dancing and an all-campus picnic.
