The Web 1982 "Panty Raid"

Description

This photo collage and description in The Web 1982 documents the annual tradition of the "panty raid" during which "Richmond College men invaded the Westhampton dormitories," and the Westhampton women would throw panties to the men from the dorm windows and dump water on them. The description states that this year's "panty raid" resulted in the campus police getting involved and water damage in the dorms.
