The Spoofer's Stone is another long-standing tradition at the University of Arkansas. It dates back to the construction of Old Main (University Hall). As the limestone for the building was being transported to the construction site, one of the oxcarts broke depositing a large and now broken block of limestone in the lawn. Once construction was completed and the debris was cleared, the broken stone was left at the lawn. It immediately became a popular resting spot for students on the campus.

In the early days of the University, male and female students were not allowed to fraternize in any way while on campus. This put a great strain on the social life of the "Campsters." And thus a great tradition was born. A female student would take a seat on the stone and slip a note for her sweetheart in the crack of the stone; she would then rise and walk away. A short time later the male student would stroll over to the stone, take a seat, and retrieve his mail. This continued to be a popular custom with the students for many years. Spoofer's Stone also became a popular place for marriage proposals, and couples who became engaged would often remove small portions of the stone for mementos.

In 1933, the Spoofer's Stone was beginning to show signs of its years of wear and tear and the (female) students expressed great concern that this wonderful tradition could be lost forever. They raised the money to have the stone repaired and gently mounted in a concrete base to preserve it. The repair took place in 1933 and there is a brass plaque commemorating the ladies class of 1932-33, who saved this special tradition for all sweethearts at this University for years to come.
