In the early 1970's, on the ivy-covered campus of Princeton University, one first spied sophomores running naked through the school's hallowed halls and prancing upon its manicured quads. Though its conception is shrouded in mystery, the Nude Olympics was a cult staple of the University for nearly three decades, beloved by students and predictably hated on by faculty and alumni. In 1999, after threats of year-long suspensions graduated from the category of "idle" to "very real," the bacchanalian games came to an abrupt end.
In its heyday, Princeton's streak fest wrangled hundreds of student bodies, enticed them to shuffle off their clothed coils despite frigid temperatures, and created the greatest spectacle of naked flesh outside of a Spencer Tunick photograph.
Still, the Naked Olympics ain't got nothin' on the Hamilton College Varsity Streaking Team.
