“So This Is Wesleyan’s Clothing-Optional Library…”

Who says Wes lacks solid traditions?

At approximately 12:40 yesterday afternoon, the entire main floor of Olin Library stripped to its underwear, continuing a Wes tradition of recent years—and just in time for four tour groups to cycle through. Participants remained studious and stoic, tour guides cool and collected, librarians kept a bemused distance, and all culminated with an impassioned take on the Wes Fight Song.

Because really, corny as it sounds, nothing brings the Wesleyan community together quite like messing with unsuspecting prefrosh.

Some photo highlights after the jump. Faces have been, err—altered to protect privacy.

  7. Check it

    I wish I’d gone this year.

    I was there the first year. I miss it so.

    The history of it is one of the tour guides was doing his last tour and he got all his friends to spread the word. When he walked into the library and saw everyone he literally jumped up in excitement. It was hilarious.

    I’m glad we still do things like this. Even if I sometimes sleep through them…

    Sigh…
