This image shows students sitting on the edge of a drained fountain in front of Varsity Gym in October 1986. The fountain and another located in Sanford Mall were permanently drained after a constant stream of vandalism made maintenance and upkeep too time consuming and expensive. Both fountains were eventually removed. A student in the center can be seen playing a guitar. This image appears in the October 2, 1986, edition of "The Appalachian" (p. 6B).
