GALLERY: More Lafayatte banners, more Lehigh spirit

0

As Lehigh’s spirit week continued, so did the playful mockery of its rival school. Members of the Lehigh community spray-painted banners with clever jokes about Lafayette to hang on their residences.

With the 152nd playing of the rivalry game fast-approaching, the campus has united around its feelings for Lafayette. Even President John Simon got in on the spirit week fun by hanging a sign referencing his Instagram account.

See the first gallery of the week here. The Brown and White welcomes submissions of your own Lafayette signs through our Twitter or by emailing sjt217@lehigh.edu.
