Today — March 14 — is our favorite holiday and we’ve been gearing up for it all year! Even though we celebrate our #SpiderPride every day, this year’s National Spider Day is particularly special because it’s part of our yearlong celebration of the 125th anniversary of our special identity.

So, to celebrate Spider Day in our 125th year of being the Spiders, we’re pulling out all the stops. Not only did we start the celebration early on Founder’s Day, tonight we’re hosting 19 alumni gatherings around the world — from New York to Shanghai! Plus, we’ve even launched some fun digital swag we think you might like, and profiled a handful of notable alums, faculty, and staff who exemplify what we think it means to be a Spider.

As you sport your red and blue, we look forward to following along as you reconnect with old friends and meet some new ones, too. So don’t forget to share your pics with us! You can even add some flair to your Insta stories with our new GIF stickers.

Thanks for hanging with us and showing off your #SpiderPride. And don’t forget – once a Spider, always a Spider.
