The "rock." Alumni always ask about it. Students pet it for good luck. And during January and early February, when fraternal societies pledge new members at Whittier College, it changes colors more often than a chameleon. Student pledges paint it sometimes four or five times a day. "It gets so busy," said Susan Harvey, the college's director of alumni relations, "that societies have to make rock reservations."
