“Egg Wars” is an unsanctioned tradition between the senior and junior classes in which students meet during the night during Spirit Week to throw eggs at each other. These “wars” occur on public and private property and cause hundreds of dollars of damage, according to Gallagher.
A similar incident occurred in 2009 when Paly students hosted the wars on Gunn’s campus, causing administrators to issue mass suspensions, leading to student protests. This time, administrators have initially opted to reward good cleanup behavior rather than punish the participants with suspensions.
The Paly Voice will follow up on this story with updates as more information becomes available.
