For the 19th straight year, a UK class donated money for a historical marker on campus.

The University unveiled the "Tug Of War" marker from the class of 2012.  Before WWI, the freshmen and sophomore classes competed in tug of war. 

The University says the event used to draw 2,000 spectators. 

UK President Eli Capilouto says he wants students to give and remember.  Capilouto says the markers embody those values.

"Markers that honored our past of things that are still very meaningful to us today, and they also symbolize that tradition of excellence at the University of Kentucky," said President Capilouto. 

The marker is near the William T. Young Library.
