Cute ... and community minded too:
Click on the Pumpkin Carving Contest.
"Tonight well find out who wins the honor of having Vassar President Catharine Cappy Hill greet callers on their answering machine or cell phone voice mail. All entries in Campus Dinings Pumpkin Carving Contest will be judged tonight at 7:30 pm in front of Main Building. Then, Cappy will record a personal greeting for the grand prizewinner, during which she introduces herself and tells callers the winner is not available.
Students could enter the contest by donating 10 campus dining points to receive a pumpkin, a knife, and a candle. Carving took place at the All College Dining Center (ACDC) on Tuesday, October 30. For each pumpkin sold, five dollars will be donated to the community organization Dutchess Outreach. This donation will mark the kickoff to Vassars Community Works Campaign for 2008, which officially launches Thursday, November 1. Contestants could carve alone or create a team."
