Several senior thesis writers are pretty upset about this year’s date for Zonker coming before thesis deadline. Because Spring Break was so late this year, thesis deadline was pushed back a week. Back when WesFest was on the weekend (before the Office of Admission started changing the dates so that it wouldn’t align with 4/20), Zonker Harris Day was planned to forever be the Saturday of WesFest. Then it became the Saturday after WesFest. In the future it should maybe be the Saturday after theses are due? Idk.
Anyways, many thanks to WestCo presidents Lena Mitchell ’20, Kofi Ofori-Darko ’20, Maximo Lipman ’20, and Olivia Waltner ’20 for throwing this thing together.
As a prime for tomorrow’s festival, here is a video from Zonker Harris Day 2012 of this guy having a grand ol’ time with a parachute:
