Yesterday was Reading Day at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, the day when no classes are held or final exams given. Students are busy studying, writing papers, doing group work, and wrapping up the end of the semester. In the above photo, you see an annual tradition that dates to 1969, the placing of the luminarias on reading day. When the sun went down, the candles were aglow and the festivities began. The Spartan Chariots sang and free hot chocolote and cookies were distributed at the Quad lawn. The folks at Housing and Residence Life, as well as the on-campus Greek community, took care of the details relalated to this project. Over 1,000 luminaries are placed around campus. This year's luminary lighting is a fundraiser to raise money for a beginning teacher in Siler City, NC, to build her classroom library. Let's hope that this fundraising component, in the 44th year of the tradition, was successful and that the organizers adopt a classroom again next year.
