Senior Fountain Run

A dozen scrapes and bruises are my relics from Fountain Run 2012, a senior tradition at the University of Southern California. It is held on the last Thursday of class every spring semester - a day when seniors literally "run the campus". It was a crazy event highlighted by hordes of drunken seniors running around and splashing through all 29 fountains on our campus (aside from the ones that campus authorities strategically blocked off). I don't even want to think about how disgustingly vile and unsanitary the water in the fountains were. The smartest thing I did that night: wearing closed toe shoes.

  1. Running through fountains is always fun whether you're 5 or 55! I dream of the day when I can have a mansion with an indoor waterfall and I can just run through it anytime I want... haha.

  2. Add a lit fountain to a nook or other calm region. They're perfect for building up state of mind and adding some peaceful feeling to a region. water wall fountains
