During spring term, many dorms host what’s called a tea. Mainly girls dorms have tea, but some boys dorms do too, like Abbot Tea, Webster has “Meat Fest” and Ewald has a “Klatsch”. For tea, students ask someone, whether boyfriend or friend, to be their tea date.
At the tea, people socialize, eat food, and play games. At my dorm’s tea, Browning, we had a piñata. We also tried to get a crochet set, but we couldn’t find one. I went to McConnell tea on Sunday because I am moving into that dorm next year (I am moving into McConnell next year because my dorm is being flipped into a boys dorm next year). They have been very welcoming and sweet and invited me to their tea. At their tea, they had bubbles, fuse ball, and paper and crayons. Tables are set out for people to sit at and it’s a great time.
Here are some pictures from Browning and McConnell tea. You can also check out some pictures from different teas at theexeterdresscode.tumblr.com. You can also see what people wear to class on this blog, too.
