From the Archives: Arrests End Escapades of Haverford May Day Raid

May Day at Bryn Mawr is all fun and games until the maypoles go missing. And that’s exactly what happened in May of 1966 when a group of Haverford students were arrested for their springtime shenanigans. Although the students were not successful in their attempted prank, they still suffered the consequences and were fined a total of $306. That’s worth about $2200 today! For any scheming pranksters, think twice before absconding with any maypoles this May Day season.
