Dunce caps? Susan Rabinowitz Malloy ’45 promptly phoned in her recollection that, “as a freshman, you had to wear a bib with your name on it. If you forgot your bib, you had to wear a dunce cap for dinner.” Alumni may remember other hazing stunts, such as being told to drop your books, or to wear mismatched or odd-colored clothing, or—as in this photo—to eat from the wrong end of the silverware. Rabinowitz also recalls that after the first few months, “we burned the bibs in a huge bonfire on campus—somewhere close to the science building, I think.”
