Title

Article "UR Students React to Recent Panty Raid"

Description

Beginning in the 1950s, an annual "panty raid" tradition took place on campus when Richmond College students would cross over the bridge to the Westhampton side of campus. Westhampton women would throw panties to the men from their dorm windows. The 1976 panty raid was different in that a nude masked woman began dancing on the ledge of a third-story window. One Richmond College freshman is quoted as saying "'I had an image of southern, modest girls and I was surprised, but not disgusted.'" According to the article, "other girls said it was 'disgusting' and 'unfortunate that she felt obligated to entertain the guys in that manner.'"
