Several hundred College of William and Mary students attended Primal Scream Fall 2009 in the Sunken Garden at midnight Thursday.
Primal Scream is a recent tradition at the College. Held at the end of fall and spring terms during finals, students gather to scream together, ostensibly for the purposes of stress relief.
College President Taylor Reveley was intended to be the Scream’s special guest. Unfortunately, after the event was postponed from Tuesday night due to rain, Reveley had to fly to New York and missed the Scream. Organizers told The Flat Hat, however, that Reveley still showed up Tuesday night despite the wet weather.
If you missed this semester’s Scream but would like to belatedly join in, you can listen to audio to the right. Just scream silently if you’re at Swem.
