Summary of Event:

The annual tradition “Fox Day” occurs at Rollins College in Florida and has been occurring since 1956.  “Fox Day” occurs when the president chooses a random day in Spring in which he places a statue of a Fox placed on the school’s main lawn. This placement of the Fox signifies that classes are canceled for the day and the college provides students with a surprise day off to explore local beaches and amusement parks. Upon their arrival to campus in the afternoon, students are treated to a barbecue on the same main lawn that the fox was placed on.
