The quad. According to local legend, if you walk across the quad, you will end up dropping out and failing to graduate. Also according to local legend, if you walk over the crest that is under that arch, you (or your girlfriend) will fall pregnant. If you want to get un-pregnant, just walk backward over the crest. Everyone claims that they know someone who disregarded these warnings and either dropped out or became pregnant or both.
