The LMU Fountain

I guess when it’s your birthday, you get dunked into the fountain, naked.

My informant learned this tradition from going to orientation at Loyola Marymount University. My informant has never experienced this tradition first hand and heard about it from other college students. This piece of folklore terrifying for me, as I learned it at an orientation myself. This made me not want to go to LMU and had a negative affect on me.
