Student social life at McGill covers a wide spectrum ranging from rambunctious snowball battles on the lower campus to the dignified formality of a graduation ball. Nor have such activities been restricted to the main campus, as the adventures over the years of the various outdoor clubs testify. For more then a century student newspapers, including since 1911 the McGill Daily, and other publications have formed a vital part of life on campus. McGill students also have a long tradition of enthusiastic participation in musical and theatrical productions, the most famous being the national tour in 1957 of McGill's musical "My Fur Lady". Banquets, pub nights, dances, winter carnival celebrations and a variety of social club functions likewise add their own dimension to social activities.
