For a century and a half the Slant Walk has been the main artery of the campus. Once a dusty path through a pasture, it was graveled in the eighties. For many years it was illuminated with Chinese lanterns for the Commencement season. In the early days Slant Walk ended at the two old dorms where students fed their stoves with wood from the forest.
