  In reply to: your greatest campus prank?  posted by FightOnForMorrissey

I think it was my freshman year (1991), that the school REALLY started trying to crack down on the numerous ALumni/Dillon pranks. So, two of my friends REALLY made sure to continue the tradition.

One night, one slept on the couch in the Dillon lounge with a pocket alarm clock and the other slept IN THE DILLON BATHROOM with a pocket alarm clock. At about 4 AM, the one in the lounge calmly walked over to the Rector's door and spent about a half hour prying his nameplate, as well as the entire "message board" they have in front of each door, off the wall. The other had brought a frickin' toolbox into the bathroom and proceeded to unscrew and remove every single toilet paper dispenser from the facility ("permanent ones" had been installed in an attempt to stop the practice of taking the other dorm's dispenses, but this was obviously futile.), so that people using the bathroom would have nothing to use - usually after having started.

The guy who took the nameplate (David Certo) kept it hanging in his room the rest of his time at ND and nobody ever caught him (even though Dillon ordered a search of all the Alumni rooms. The guy who took the toilet paper dispensers (Joe Hayes) took the time to walk all the way across campus and threw them into another dorm's dumpster - they never even suspected Alumni.

God, the memories....

Go Dawgs!
