UIUC: Eternal Flame

Eternal Flame
A gift from graduating class of 1912
Location: between Lincoln Hall and the English Building
at UIUC [University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign]

The UIUC website .. click here..  informs..
 Formerly an ever-burning oil lamp, with the saying "a lovers kiss will bring eternal bliss" kissing your sweetheart under the flame meant your love would last forever. Now, the electric light tends to flicker on and off, so students have changed the myth: lovers who kiss underneath the flame are doomed to an on and off relationship. Kiss your special someone here and find out.
