Do Harvard students really pee on the statue?

Recommended Posts

I've seen multiple claims that Harvard students peeing on the statue of John Harvard is a tradition.



But i only have ever seen 1 such picture. As they say, "pics or it didn't happen", so I can't imagine students who do this would go without taking a picture. So, is it really a thing?

Its not just John Harvard. At UPenn there is an iron bench with a statue of Ben Franklin. My friend and tour guide told us not to sit on it because students there give it a nightly washing to get back at tourists crowding the campus.
