When school is in session, the broad expanse in front of you—the university's main quadrangle—buzzes with activity just as it did in the early 1900s, but life was much more regimented then. Students received demerits if they did not obey strict dress and behavior codes.

They had to be punctual and were constantly—perhaps annoyingly—reminded of that by chimes that rang every 15 minutes from the clock tower in White Hall. They also had to avoid "Mother" Watkins, who kept a watchful eye out to make sure no one tried to steal a kiss while crossing the quadrangle between classes.
