ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the making of marks by seniors and freshmen at Roanoke College campus in Virginia. Freshmen are given the chance to formally mark their entrance into the college community during the induction ceremony where they sign in to a book. The tradition for seniors to sign off by burning their names into the wood on a floor-to-ceilings is being revived by president Michael Maxey and his wife. Information on how some institutions help seniors make their mark is provided.
