have their own local urban legend
s. One of the most common is that when anyone manages to graduate
without ever having had sex
, something unlikely
At the University of Florida, when a virgin graduates, a brick will fall from Century Tower. It still has all its bricks, which is received as ironclad evidence that everyone gets laid. (Not true -- I was living proof). Wiseguys sometimes walk by the tower wearing hard hats, and every few years someone brings a brick on stage during the graduation ceremony.
At other schools, sitting statues stand up or leave the campus in disgust. (I'd appreciate hearing about equivalent traditions at other schools).
