The first day of fall-term exams my freshman year, a snowball fight broke out in front of Witherspoon. Then some residents of ’Spoon on the second-floor terrace began throwing down into the crowd. This prompted a volley of snowballs at them, which then evolved into attempts to break the windows. Soon many windows were broken and snowballs could be seen flying into the rooms, including, I’m sorry to say, a few of mine. One student came out shouting to stop since he had exams that day. Of course, this produced a barrage directed at him and his room. The next day we saw many windows boarded up.
