A campus tradition

Wading into Furman’s picturesque fountains is forbidden.

But on this day – the last day of classes – university police look the other way.

In what has become a well-watched campus tradition, Furman seniors stride into the Milford Mall fountains each year to celebrate the last day of classes and to mark a coming end of their undergraduate days.

Someone always brings a blow-up float. And there is plenty of camera-mugging as well.

University photographer Jeremy Fleming was there to capture the scene. They are are posted on Edge, Furman’s digital magazine.
