Midnight Campaniling- Campanile Plaza
Campaniling is a tradition that has been participated in since the early years of the campanile's existence. This tradition has grown into a huge event, one in which nearly every student participates before he or she graduates from the university. Rumor has it that for every student who graduates from UNI without being kissed in the shadow of the campanile, a brick will fall from the tower! Come on over to the Campanile and participate in a UNI tradition!
