John Maxwell

3. Incoming freshman at Phillips were subjected to this activity designed to build a sense of unity.

What was this activity called? Frosh Initiation

4. Under rules adopted by the Student Council, which had been organized in 1914, freshmen at Phillips wore this in green until after the Thanksgiving football game each year. Later, the color of it changed. In the 1950s, they were maroon and white. What was the adornment? To continue this tradition, the 1st Year Legacy Scholars receive them at each annual leadership development conference and learn about the Frosh Initiation.
