Catch Up on Campus

Get a very modern look at an old campus tradition.

Since the 1940s, students painting "The Rock" has been an accepted avenue of free expression. Almost every night, a different group paints a message or symbols promoting a cause or event. To claim painting rights, students camp out to "guard" the Rock.
