Wheeling Jesuit University/Campus/Lundy Place of Gathering
The Lundy Place of Gathering is Lundius Superbus' first project, which was the first physical incarnation of "Operation More Things Equals More Fun", Lundius' controversial new budget plan which allowed for the spending of zillions of dollars on things which were supposed to improve student and faculty morale. Most of that zillion dollars was never seen again, but that's another tale for another time.
In 2001, at the beginning of his presidency, Lundius Superbus sent out massive numbers of questionnaires to the students, asking them what they would like to see happen on campus to improve morale. After all entries regarding alcohol were disposed of, the remaining four entries overwhelmingly asked for a new parking garage. Superbus decided that a parking garage was not what he had in mind, so he fabricated the results of the survey to say that the students wanted a new place for socialising. WJU students responded enthusiastically by falling asleep.
When they awoke, they discovered that neither alcohol nor a parking garage had been provided. Instead, they were treated to the Lundy Place of Gathering.
The Lundy Place of Gathering is a massive circular pit dug into the ground next to Swint Hall. The pit is over half a kilometer in diameter and at least two metres deep. Additionally, the pit is filled with roughly ten centimeters worth of broken glass. At night, the Lundy Place of Gathering is flooded with light, and the broken glass provides a beautiful glittering effect.
Now This Ain't Right...
Lundius Superbus was disappointed to see that students were not taking to the Lundy Place of Gathering as well as he had hoped. He designed posters and encouraged students to treat it as the "hip" new place on campus. While some students did enter the Lundy Place of Gathering simply to please Lundius, their flesh was ripped off and they died. The exit poll prepared by the Board of Governors had a shocking 0% return rate.
A drunken couple attempted to have sex at the Lundy Place of Gathering. Before campus security could stop them, their flesh was ripped off and they died.
The Lundy Place of Gathering is still open to the public. The Board of Governors have yet to receive a single reply from their exit poll. Student use of the Lundy Place of Gathering is still low; the Bear Colony makes more money per annum than it. In spite of this, making fun of the Lundy Place of Gather's white elephant nature could earn a student Double Secret Probation.
The Lundy Place of Gathering is the only campus location that is routinely serviced by Metaphysical Plant, only due to the Imps' penchant for throwing the tormented into giant pits of broken glass.
