Oglethorpe University doubled as Harry Potter’s school Nov. 12, hosting its second annual Harry Potter Day. For the day, Oglethorpe turns into Hogwarts, with wizard’s chess and quidditch on the quad. Sophomore Davis Clem, above, the white team’s queen in the chess game played with human-sized pieces, checks her weapon and with the white team’s king, senior Thomas Smith, as they prepare for battle. At left, Smith rallies the Hufflepuff team as they play quidditch, a game in which players fly on brooms, at least in the movies. Smith’s team won.
