The Rock is at a fairly central point of the campus, in between the Jackson Library and the Fountain and Caf. This could be considered a centrality fix in a way because of its location. Aside from placement, the Rock itself is a stack. There are layers upon layers of paint from years' worth of messages. It holds memories for many students, including me. If you look closely at the picture my initials are painted on the Rock from my first evening living on campus. The different layers all hold memories for one person or another, and they are stacked upon each other in a single location.
