Let Them Eat Cake
During their post-loading party, the admissions office staff enjoy a cake dedicated to the class of 2016.
After months of processing, deliberating, and accepting applications, admissions office staff enjoy pizza as they relax for an afternoon.
The staff members cheer as they load the acceptance letters, wish for luck as they load the wait-list letters, and silently load the rejection letters as they send letters to the 34,302 applicants to the class of 2016.
Long-time veterans of the admissions officer staff have the privilege of standing at the front of the line as the boxes are passed off to the mailman.
Patricia DiCarlo Fagioli, an information processing coordinator who has worked in the admissions office for 26 years, carries the last box of decision letters to the truck.
Champagne is poured as the staff prepare to toast the newly-accepted members of the class of 2016 and the hard work that went into selecting them.
Admissions Office staff members form an assembly line to load the letters onto the mail truck, starting with the acceptance letters and following with the rest of the letters.
Cheers to 2016
