[edit] Introduction

During 2008-2009, the College began phasing out trays in the dining halls in an effort to reduce waste of food and energy. Williams has been completely trayless since fall 2009 except in Whitman's. Nevertheless, trays and their carvings were once an important part of campus life. Carvings fall into a bunch of categories: Wilbur trays, "Tray of" trays, tray puns, Cult of Tom trays, trays with pictures, and...other trays.

[edit] Sledding trays

Trays that have been stolen and used as sleds often have shallow or deep grooves in the bottom, running parallel to the long axis of the tray. This is courtesy of the rocks buried underneath the snow that Williams students sled on. Rocks: not your ordinary tray carvers.
