School of Mines traditions hold strong


M week at the School of Mines is nearing its end, but there is no lack of school spirit or school rituals.

Friday hundreds of students and alumni made their way to Founders Park for the annual picnic and M Hill Climb.

After getting their fill of grub, students made the hike up the hill to white wash the M.

School traditions held strong Friday. Students dressed up in wacky outfits, and freshman walked from campus to Founders Park wearing their honorary freshman beanies.

Freshman Jake Deweese says it's fun to stay true to the schools traditions. "The beanie means you're a frosh and after homecoming at halftime we run a lap and then we get rid of the beanies and then we're officially freshman," said Deweese.

"Traditions at the school of mines are very rich and it's one of the things that really differentiates the school from many other universities," said Alumni and Parade Marshal Jim Green.

The school of mines M Days football game kicks off at two in the afternoon Saturday, bringing an end to the M week festivities.
