May 19th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

“Pool Him!”

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photo is of a tradition that many a young Clemson student had the “honor” of taking part in. 
 “Pool him!” That is a term that meant someone’s going into the water. 
 Many a Clemson Cadet has been tossed into the old reflection pond throughout the years.

There have also been some dips into the fountain at the front of the Clemson House.

How about in one of the large sinks in the old barracks? Yes, indeed.

The pool in the old YMCA was also an easy target.

More recently, the Cooper Library reflection pond served as nice dumping point as well.

The only thing that is different through the years is the location!
