At Harvard, a tad more than 1 in 10 have done the deed—presumably within shouting distance of "Lady Chatterley's Lover," "Jane Eyre," and Plato's "Republic" — according to the school's newspaper.
Harvard's daily, The Crimson, surveys graduating seniors each year on topics such as post-graduation plans as well as sex and drugs on campus—and about 13% of the 2013 cap-and-gown crowd claims to have had sex in Harvard's library.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but 14.5% of men and 11% of women report that they've taken extra special study breaks within the hollowed walls of the century-old structure.
Reuters notes that "having sex in Widener is apparently part of the 'Big Three'—a trifecta of illicit tasks some Harvard students try to complete before graduation day."
The other two brass rings on the Ivy League merry-go-round?
- Urinating on the statue of John Harvard's shiny foot (23% of seniors say they accomplished this);
- Participating in the "Primal Scream" (i.e., streaking across campus on the last night before exams begin (32% have scaled this peak).
Only 4% of graduating seniors have done all three deeds, the survey reported.
(And would you believe that only 38% of graduating Harvard seniors say they've tried marijuana?)

On other matters, the survey notes that 61% of graduates will be employed next year; 18% will attend graduate school. The most popular field? "Consulting," where students expect to earn $70,000 to $90,000 annually.
No word if sex in the office is a career goal.
On a related note, Harvard approved a student organization devoted to kinky sex several months back (i.e., bondage-discipline, dominant-submission, and sadism-masochism, a.k.a., BDSM). The group's name? The Harvard Munch. Here's more from TYT University:
