A few more Mount Holyoke notes before I visit Smith.
MOUNT HOLYOKE COLLEGE FRESHMAN HANDBOOK
FOR THE CLASS OF 1966
FROM THEIR SISTER CLASS, 1964
CANDLELIGHT, COFFEE AND CONVERSATION
The meals on Wednesday evening and Sunday noon are known as "Gracious Living." These are times of metamorphosis from the perpetual bermudas and sweatshirt to stockings, heels, and more formal attire.
TEA AND CRUMPETS; MILK AND CRACKERS
To help you add those extra freshman ten pounds, milk and crackers are set out each night at 9:45, a welcome break in the study routine.
(Now "freshman five" or "freshman fifteen"...First mention of "Gracious Living" is in the Freshman Handbook for 1950/51, pg. 34, although the term is first formally used here--ed.)
