Can I step on the compass?

I actually did not hear about the urban legend (that you would fail your exams if you walk through the compass on Locust Walk) till my sophomore year, and I'm pretty sure I had committed multiple offenses when I was a freshman. My grades were still ok. Well, somewhat ok.

The legend stems from a fraternity - they were using this as a way to see who is a freshman (who avoids the compass). Definitely not necessary to avoid the compass but full disclosure, I have been for the past semester.
