The Hill

"The Hill" is a tradition known primarily to the Fraternities here on campus. At the conclusion of every Fall Rush, all who wish to pledge a fraternity congregate at the top of Old Main Hill. At this time, those still deciding between houses make their final decision, separate into houses, and the houses take turns running down the hill. At the bottom they are greeted by the current members of their house where they engage in rowdiness and walk to their respective houses, singing songs of pride the whole way. The sororities do the same thing, but on the stairs from the TSC to the fountain.

Old Main Hill is also the site of sledding and ice blocking. It was used until the 70's as the location of beginning ski classes. It was also plowed as a victory garden following WWI.
