Lighting of the Quad
A colorful celebration
Published Dec 8, 2016
'Tis the season for final papers, late nights at MSE Library, and an extra shot of espresso in a warm drink from Levering Café. These testimonies to the end of the fall semester at Johns Hopkins come with one last celebration before students buckle down to prepare for exams—the annual Lighting of the Quad. On Wednesday night, the JHU community gathered on the Homewood campus for this seasonal tradition, which took place on Wyman Quad due to ongoing construction outside of Krieger Hall. There were no fireworks this year, but there was a laser show, roller skating, and ice sculpting and fire-spinning performances.
