This past Sunday evening was the annual Eve of the Seventh Season, a Millsaps ritual designed as a symbolic transitioning of juniors into seniors (hence the name “seventh season,” which is the fall semester of one’s senior year). The junior class walks around campus along a candle-lit path to learn the history of various Millsaps landmarks and the symbolism behind them. I was elected by my peers to speak at one of seven stations, which was a great honor for me! Afterward, we gathered in the Weems House across the street for a reception. It was nice to get to catch up with all of my fellow juniors over croissants and cocktails. Senior year, here we come!
