As four of these signs (and a Public Safety officer) can attest to, apparently swimming in the Wilson School fountain is expressly forbidden, at the dire threat of removal from the area (by the aforementioned Public Safety officer, no doubt). According to this
sign, both wading and dog bathing are also prohibited, although visitors are allowed to “dip their toes” and “enjoy the beautiful surroundings.” The sign doesn’t clarify, so who knows where the fine line between toe-dipping and wading lies? (Maybe when no parts of the body are touching the fountain except the feet?) It’s also unknown what stimulated the University to start to crack down on fountain use, and if this is really the best use of a Public Safety officer’s time.
