Friday Afternoon Fountain Jumps
Friday was a warm and sunny day, perfect for jumping into the cool water of the fountains. The tradition of jumping into the fountains began with the first class of graduates in 1959.
The fountains were filled in and levelled in 1975 due to drainage problems. Later, between 1998 and 2000, the two fountains on either end of the Air Garden were re-excavated and filled with water again.
The fountains were under construction last year. Once completed, the area was returned to the original 1950s design. The project was funded by the classes of 1972, 1975, and 1976 and the Association of Graduates.
