Favorite Mount Memory: Crab Feast/Tiki Dance
The first week of every fall semester is loaded with extracurricular activities to help warm up the freshmen class to the college life. These two are the two that stand out in my mind as activities that upper classmen still get excited about every year. At the Crab Feast, a small fee gets you an all-you-can-eat taste of one of the best delicacies Maryland has to offer, and the Tiki Dance is just one big outdoor party.
