    If you walk around the Lake LaVerne, the home of Lancelot and Elaine, three times with your beloved you are destined to be together.

    There's a nice bench on the Memorial Union side of the lake where you can sit in peaceful contemplation.

    Created in 1933 and named for alum LaVerne Noyes, who donated money for the lake. Swans named Lancelot and Elaine have been fixtures on the site since 1935.

    Say 'hi' to Lancelot and Elaine, Iowa State's resident swans! Another ISU tradition - walk around Lake LaVerne 3 times in silence with your beloved and you are destined to be together!
