In its original incarnation, the Old Well was the sole source of water for the University of North Carolina's campus in Chapel Hill. The current form of the Old Well was built in 1897 as a neoclassical rotunda and encompasses a water fountain that uses the same source of water as its predecessor. Tradition dictates that students prior to their first exams should drink from the Old Well for good luck and on football game days, the North Carolina Tar Heels team will travel from the Old Well to Kenan Memorial Stadium for the big game.
