BEREA — Berea College celebrated its 137th annual Mountain Day Wednesday with fun activities, music, food and hiking in the college's forest.

Students were shuttled to Indian Fort as early as 6:30 a.m. to hike the mountain as the sun rose.

Mountain Day began in 1875 during the presidency of E.H. Fairchild as an annual campus-wide picnic that featured hiking, music  and hay rides.
