Westhampton Alumna Weighs in on Ring Dance Change

As a four-year member of Westhampton College Government Association who served as the junior and senior class president during my time at Richmond, I obviously hold a special place in my heart for Westhampton College and its traditions -- particularly Ring Dance, to which I devoted the better part of my junior year. Needless to say, I was extremely disappointed to read the article in last week's Collegian announcing some major changes to Ring Dance for the class of 2016 -- black dresses replacing the traditional white ones, and escorts being removed as a part of the ceremony. Many things about this situation are upsetting to me, but the most concerning part is that these changes are being forced upon Westhampton College by the administration without so much as even a simple poll of the student body.
