409. Jocular

408. Jocular
Definition: (adj) humorous or playful
Location Placed: Princeton University Chapel, Princeton, New Jersey
Date Placed: 6/8/12 at 11:44am

This is the chapel were students of a graduating class, or at least the same year in school, gather together. It is apparently the only building large enough to hold such a group of students. It sounded like they had a similar ritual to where I went to school by greeting students in their freshman year in the chapel and wishing them well at the end of their time on campus. Definitely a beautiful building. Fun fact: The architect was actually a Yale alum. During the building of the chapel, the architect actually put the Yale mascot, a bulldog, on one of the back drain pipes "to get the last laugh." However, the tour guide informed us that Princeton still got the last laugh as Yale is "in the gutter where they belong." Who doesn't love good-spirited rivalry!?
