The Day in Pictures

Students from St Andrews University indulge in a tradition of covering themselves with foam to honor the ‘academic family’ on the lower college lawn on Oct. 23, 2017, in St Andrews, Scotland. The ‘raisin weekend’ every November stems from a gift of raisins (now flour and foam) traditionally given by a first year student to their academic ‘parents’ in gratitude for their guidance.  Source: Jeff J Mitchell, Getty Images
