Last Wednesday night, women representing a number of the College’s clubs and organizations participated in a pageant based not on swimsuits, formal wear and appearance, but on strength, intelligence and character.

It’s the kind of morning everyone dreads – waking up with a prickly throat, feeling lightheaded and sapped of energy, despite having gone to bed in seemingly perfect health.
