Transcript University TRADITION Jim Parsons At the University of Maryland at College Park, students have been rubbing the nose of a statue of Testudo, the university's diamondback terrapin (thats a turtle) mascot, for good luck since 1933. Meanwhile, at Washington State University in Pullman, Wash., students claim that the red glow cast on the schools central clock tower will only dim when a virgin graduates. And closer to home, students at Rice University take it upon themselves to run naked around the campus three times per month. Yes, college students find comfort in interesting traditions. From the ivy-laden halls of the East to the sun-drenched campuses of the West (and even in rural Louisiana, where students at Northwestern State University staged an elaborate ritual so they wouldn't lose their campus tradition, a 19th-century ghost), students rub and yell and congregate, all in the name of tradition. But don t think it doesn't happen here. Just go to any University ot Houston football game, and you're bound to see one of our schools traditions right there on the sidelines. They are the Frontiersmen, appearing in full dress (jeans, boots, red shirts, tan hats and dusters) at most football games and major campus events. Students at UH may not help polish a statue or aerobe and tour the campus, but the Frontiersmen are always around to lend support and spirit to the university. "We basically volunteer our time out there. We give support where the university needs it."
