Past Fox Days

On May 17, 1956, President Hugh McKean placed a statue of a fox on Mills Lawn and declared classes canceled for the day, inviting the students to do spend the day “doing things as a college.”

The First Fox Day

The first Fox Day began after lunch and culminated that evening in the Chapel. President McKean broke the news to students who took a welcome break from scheduled plans.
