Wendy Raymond presided over her very first Dorm Olympics in early September clad in a simple white dress, and wearing a stack of Mardi Gras beads around her neck that she gave away to students.

Dorm Olympics circa 1994 saw President Tom Kessinger running into the competition barefoot in an impromptu toga. Kessinger, a South Asian history scholar, was president of the College from 1988 to 1996.

Come back tomorrow to see Dorm Olympics "Now."
