Hey Day: A Uniquely Penn Tradition

Following a tradition that reaches back to 1916, Penn juniors celebrated Hey Day 2014 on May 1, by donning red shirts, strutting along Locust Walk carrying mahogany walking canes, and biting into flat-brimmed hats.

A celebration unique to Penn, Hey Day follows the last day of classes and marks the "moving up" of juniors to the senior class. With the sun shining and a welcome light breeze blowing, this year's event began with a class picnic, followed by the traditional triumphant procession to College Hall.
