The final house race of 2016-17 was fiercely contested before being settled on a day of flying eggs, chased freshmyn and sophomores, and lovely poetry.

4. House Shakesharp: 446

3. House Thortoi: 574

2. House Abbey: 607

Abbey Analysis Revisions Due Monday!

Don’t forget your Abbey revisions are due Monday in class. Please remember to include three parts:

  • your original draft
  • the revision checklist, with the elements you included highlighted
  • your new draft

The quality of these revisions is very important if you’d like to avoid an essay being due over spring break. Please make sure to proofread carefully and to write a well-developed response.

Good luck!
