25 Most Romantic College Traditions
A kiss that leads to a lifetime of eternal bliss. Given as the class gift of 1912, the eternal flame monument sits between the English building and Lincoln hall. It's a semicircular bench with an electric lamp mounted on top of it. This monument represents a legend that if two lovers kissed there, they would be bound to each other eternally. This tradition is still being carried out by the students of this university. Married Illini often return to the spot to admire this glowing symbol of their devotion to each other.
