Seniors To Sing To Underclassmen No, Santa Claus and his rein deer are not making an early round it s just the early morning echoes of the seniors, caroling to herald the arrival of Dec. 18. Traditionally every year, the sen iors drag themselves out of bed about 5 a.m., pile into warm clothes, and serenade the faculty and students .around the campus with Christmas songs. Then happy but frozen, they conclude their caroling by standing in two lines on either side of the covered way and singing to the sleepy excited underclassmen on their way to breakfast.
