Tthe purple cows surrounding your birthday cupcake are covered with gold glitter.

When your partner feels the love you have for the college, and he outbids a bunch of Williams College people to get you a banner from 1920! 100 years!

Cleaning out closets, you start finding things.
Grey Scott Maggiano '03
You decide to spice up your online church convention with some purple.

When you find the stub from your pre-frosh homecoming weekend. Back when Weston Field tailgating was a thing. Coincidentally I felt it was a good omen because my birthday is on the 26th. #EphPride

You wear your Williams #pride hat hoping someone in the city will see it and also be an Eph!

Nerding out about this total score from my neighborhood Buy Nothing group! 1904 edition, so any abbreviated class years you see are 18___!
Robin Truelove '96
Perhaps the perfect Christmas sweater.
Susan Pitcher '90
You make time before back-to-back meetings on a rainy morning to bake purple sweet potato biscuits for breakfast. And while pleading the 5th shamelessly photograph them on the perfect plate.
