Women’s College Traditions: Apple Day

Apple Day at Mary Baldwin College: "Six decades after MBC first celebrated Apple Day, the event is as popular as ever. Although historically the actual date was a surprise, today’s celebrations are announced in advance, but that does not diminish the excitement. Perks include cancelled classes, a carnival, apple gleaning, paint the town, and a plethora of apple dishes served at the Dining Hall.

True to its roots, Apple Day continues to be used as a platform for promoting community service through local organizations and encourages involvement in campus clubs. It is a testament to the purpose for which the tradition was originally created. There will always be people who need the volunteer help of Mary Baldwin College students, faculty, and staff."
