About Class Day
The New Hampshire College of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts was founded in
Hanover, NH in 1866. The college moved to Durham, NH in 1893 and became the
University of New Hampshire in 1923. From 1898 to 1941 each graduating class held
their class day exercises either the day before or the day of commencement. Class
Day was filled with the usual speeches and music. The Ivy Oration was given by a
member of the class. They also planted the class ivy plant next to a building with
each member of the class scooping a small amount of dirt into the hole.
