#HWSday is the Colleges' annual social media extravaganza that celebrates all things Hobart and William Smith! Each year on #HWSday, members of the HWS community can show off their school spirit, help unlock big campus announcements (like the 2016 Commencement speaker) and compete for prizes by participating in photo contests across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
#HWSday has traditionally served as a way for students to come together to showcase their school spirit through a variety of fun activities. In the early years of #HWSday – before cell phones and selfies – HWS students gathered on the Quad and at the lake to compete in spirited tournaments like Coordinate Hopscotch, Blackwell Ball-in-a-Cup, and the ever-popular hootenanny that is the Hoop Roll down William Smith Hill. Today, #HWSday is hallowed as a glorious reminder of traditions past, present and even those yet to come.
