In reply to: your greatest campus prank? posted by FightOnForMorrissey
Every year when the new freshman would come in, we would take the fire extinguishers and lie in wait. When one would get in the showers, they would get the bath of their lives. I never thought you could get someone to move that fast.
We were hanging out late night in a girls dorm drinking and smoking some of the sweetleaf when we were flushed out by their RA. The five of us who were present end up racing through the dorms to hide from the cops who were to arrive shortly. We took a turn and ended up in a supply room for some upcoming campus event. Spent the next hour or so fattening ourselves up on free M&M and Snickers bars, while we waited for an all clear.
Last and best. The Biology department had this aluminum fishing boat that they would take out on our campus lake and take readings in. One drunken night, we broke in to the lab areas and "borrowed" the boat. One of my floor mates had just gotten back from a road trip to Mardi Gras and he had stopped to pick of a fireworks "cake" and a long waterproof fuse. We lit the fuse and floated the boat as far out into the lake as we could before this massive string of explosions began. That thing woke up half the damn campus at about 3 in the morning. They never did find out who did it.
