Full Moon On The Quad

Full moon on the Quad takes place in Stanford's central Main Quad annually during the middle of fall quarter. During Full Moon on the Quad, Stanford students kiss each mother under the moonlight starting from midnight. Usually a live entertainment including dance and musical performances usually proceed midnight. Kissing the Stanford Tree, the school's unofficial mascot, is an extremely popular way for students to get mono.

Traditionally, full moon was a tradition where female Stanford freshman would line up while male Stanford seniors would also line up and give a Stanford freshman a rose and a kiss on the cheek. Now the tradition includes girls and guys from each grade and has lost its formality.
