25 Most Romantic College Traditions

zpoofer’s stone is believed to be a remnant of the Old Main building, and represents a tradition well known to the folks of the University of Arkansas. Long ago, when fraternization of the sexes was against the norms, students used to leave notes for their couples. Later it became a place known for men to pop the big question. The tradition demanded that the couple break a chip of the stone to represent their marriage, which explains why the stone has such a rugged appearance. The chipping of the stone has since been banned, but it continues to represent a great tradition.
