Description: A couple sits on the Engagement Bench in front of the Rock, but you can only see the silhouette of the couple while the Rock is lite up behind them. Passage to the picture reads, "A long-honored tradition at MSC is that only engaged couples sit on Engagement Bench. Located north of Beaumont Tower, this gift of the class of 1873, is the setting for many youthful dreams of the future. Most engaged couples, slipping away from the crowds of fellow students, find Engagement Bench a pleasant place to plan their lives".
