We'll have Bun, Bun, Bun 'Til Someone Takes The Bun Away


Silver Shrine containing "The Bun"

Since 1885, the most spirited undergraduate class has been awarded "The Bun." The award consisted of a bun enclosed in a silver casket. The phrase "You take the bun," parallels the more modern saying, "You take the cake," thus the name. Taken three times in 1921, 1971, and 1981, the Bun was last returned in 2002 and now resides in the Silver Center.

This week, a fun piece about The Bun was published in The Washington Square News. You can read the article by clicking here.
