The Origins of Moving-Up Day: In 1869, Tree Holiday (now
Moving-Up Day) was initiated by President Richard Fisk, who decreed
a spring day off from classes to allow students and faculty to transplant
trees for the nearby woods to the virtually barren campus. Many
of the trees still stand in the Herring-Cole Grove. In the 20th
century the day evolved into an occasion for the recognition of
student achievement and a symbolic “moving-up” of students
to chapel pews vacated by students a year ahead of them.
