The Excessively Overdressed Quad Stroll at Tufts University

When Tuft's end-of-fall-semester naked quad run was banned by the higher-ups in 2011 on account of of repeated hospitalizations for high alcohol-blood levels and twisted ankles, awesomely undeterred students dressed to the nines, linked arms, and slowly promenaded around the campus in the presence of amused police. Records show there were appearances by "a walking stick topped with a glass ruby," "a strange hat," "an Hawaiian vest" and "a blue sequined dress" (worn by a student holding a teacup) in the inaugural stroll, leaving students hopeful a new tradition has begun.
