Wellesley College has held a hoop rolling race in spring before graduation since 1895. It was traditionally held on May Day and the winner was said to be the first to get married in the senior class. Now, the winner is promised to be the first to achieve self-defined success. - Leanne Burden Seidel and Lisa Tuite
