What is your favorite Cobber tradition and why? What stories do you have to share about that tradition?

Tell us your favorite stop on tour and why it's your favorite. Why do you connect with the space?
My favorite spot on tour is the atrium in the Knutson Campus Center. I love to show visitors the world flags and indicate where mine is. I also like to point out the Coffee Stop, which is a favorite place of mine.
