At Bryn Mawr College, there is a stairway called the Senior Steps. The tradition is that if you walk on it before your senior year, it lessens your chances of graduating. I didn't really believe that I would not graduate if I walked on the steps, but nonetheless I stayed off them because I enjoy traditions. I think that's what the article means when it says that no one takes it seriously even though they do follow the tradition.
