Ode to Hopscotch

[We sang this] to the tune of “Tennessee Waltz” on the way up Bascom Hill and in front of the Liz Waters residence hall before the hopscotch match [Flashback, Spring 2013]:

Liz Waters Unit IV
Hopscotching queens
We’ll see you Friday afternoon
And even in our dreams.

[It was ] sometimes followed by an invitation to the Hasty Tasty for dime beers and a friendly get-together. This tradition was usually held early in the fall and served as a great way to get to know the new freshmen.

Thanks to John Allen for revisiting happy days at the UW.
