Fact or Fiction:
A popular tradition on campus used to be dunking the incoming Student Government Association president in the Winthrop Fountain.
The Student Government Association established a tradition popular among students in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. Each spring, students assembled to observe the installation ceremony for officers of the student government and various campus organizations, which included the outgoing SGA president dunking the incoming president in the fountain in front of Tillman Hall. In 1960, immediately following the installation of the SGA president, students surprised the then university president Charles Davis with a spontaneous dunk in the fountain.
