In case you missed it, the University of Pennsylvania was featured in the New York Times for our cherished custom of throwing toast at football games. The cue to throw the toast comes on the line, “Here’s a toast to dear old Penn” when the band plays our fight song, “Drink a Highball” at the end of the third quarter.

The sky filled with toast is a sight to see and certainly one Penn students and alumni know well. During a good season, anywhere from 20,000 to 30,000 pieces of toast will be thrown during each game!

Of all Penn’s customs—Hey Day, Ivy Day, Spring Fling, and more—or Pi Kappa Alpha traditions, tell us what your favorite tradition is on our discussion board. Simply log into the alumni site and type your response!
