Hoop rolling

Hoop rolling, an annual Wellesley tradition, is a race that seniors participate in before graduation. The winner of the race was originally predicted to be "the first woman in her class to be married." This prediction evolved into "the first woman to become CEO," and today, "the first woman to achieve success, however she defines it."
