Tour Guide

Painting the rock is one of BU's longstanding traditions. Members of Greek life at BU spray paint their letters on the rock as a symbol of pride. The paint on the rock is always changing; if you visit it in the morning and at night chances are the rock will be entirely different! Some say that the rock was once small, but the layers of paint have made it grow in size over the years.
