Guitarists strummed, students munched on create-your-own trail mix, and the sun shown down on Columbae’s front lawn this Friday as students and Prospective Freshmen (ProFro’s) alike celebrated the start of the weekend at Earthfest, a celebration of Stanford’s sustainability.

Full Moon on the Quad (FMOTQ) is a tradition that has students worrying. Some students worry about being awkward, some about mono and some about what clothing to wear—or the lack thereof.

The more stringent regime is implemented across campus for the annual event, even in residences not hosting ProFros.
