Mountain Day Tradition

Mountain Day. Our yearly excursion to Mount Monadnock felt like a second summer with temperatures at a high of 86 and sunny. Despite the heat, over 200 students and faculty members reached the summit. Many others took their time on the trails and admired the beauty of a National Natural Landmark that is 400 million years old.
Meanwhile. our wonderful dining hall staff seared burgers and tossed salads, and by the early afternoon, base camp was alive with students playing catch, swinging in hammocks, and refueling on the delicious meal prepared for them.
Whether they made it all 3,165 feet to the top or took a more leisurely approach, Penguins kept the legacy of the 91-year-old Mountain Day tradition alive this September.
