Spirit Week and 25th Anniversary of UTL
Spirit Week and 25th Anniversary of UTL

Each October, the Winsor campus comes alive with school pride for Spirit Week and Under the Lights, held this year October 15-18, 2019.  Students, faculty and staff embraced the challenge to top one another with the most inspired themed costumes, and Wildcat spirit reached a fever pitch by Friday's Red Day, with original class-choreographed cheers and UTL sports and festivities.

The reveal of the class cheers during the annual pep rally is always a highlight of the week, and this year's performances did not disappoint. The packed gymnasium was even treated to a surprise performance by the faculty and staff in honor of the 25th anniversary of UTL - a first, but hopefully not the last! Class VIII edged out Class VII for first place, and awards were also given to those who best embodied the spirit of the week.

In the afternoon, alumnae, family, and friends joined the 25th Annual UTL celebration, making connections and cheering on the Wildcat teams well into the night.  The spirit of competition continued throughout the weekend with cross country racing on Saturday, and two Winsor boats racing at the Head of the Charles on Sunday.
