It’s a humorous read, modelled in the fashion of any true Engineering report. It includes safety concerns, implementation details, and technical specification of the concrete mix used. Throughout the document are lighthearted jokes and statements of admiration for our prank rival.
Complete with sand toys, beach balls, inflatable rafts,and even a palm tree, the stunt lifted the spirits of the students who happened across it.
This is not the first time that NEAC has chosen POETS as a target. Previously they have covered every surface with turf (twice!), and wrapped the entire bar in tinfoil. With so many successful attempts, we have to wonder how they continue to get in. :P
The Civil Engineers were perhaps the most prolific pranksters this year.
(though we’ll have to count once the dust settles)
Full of Hot Air
The Civil Computer Lab (E2 2340) was made brighter when it was filled with hundreds of balloons.
The Civil Engineers pulled a similar prank on their classroom of CPH 3607, replacing balloons with hundreds of cups of water.
As a reward for following hints placed around, you were lead to the assignment dropbox on the the third floor of CPH. The Civil Engineers were kind enough to leave a bowl of Rockets candy for those who made it.
In the central column of RCH, the Civil Engineers produced what can only be described as abstract art. Made of a bunch of cardboard boxes suspended from the upper handrail, it has remained over the weekend as a (minor) spectacle for all to see.
Set in stone
This concrete slab was found in the CPH foyer. It solidifies the slogan of the Civil Engineering Undergraduates: “Civils always win!”
Geological Engineering slept in and was late to the party. However, that didn’t stop them from pulling a number of pranks.
Geological Engineering decided that they had had enough of Civil and Environment claiming E2, and decided to claim it for their own.
Taking advantage of perhaps the world’s most mineral, Geological Engineering students know that they aren’t the only ones on campus with dirty minds.
Whoever owns that phone number is going to get a lot of calls in the near future…
Thank You Door
In order to thank their favourite professor and Chair of Geological Engineering, students decorated the door to his office and added their own rendition of him.
Geological Engineers pulled out their puns once again and put signs up around campus:
There were also a number of puns littered around the 2nd floor of RCH, including:
“Don’t take your education for granite.” “Do you have the SOILution?” “No cheating! Mine-d your own business.” “You better do fracking well on this exam!” “Friday mornings are sodalite-full :)” “You’re so gneiss sometimes I take you for granite.”
Gift it forward
As a nice gift to the rest of the Geological Engineering program, these to-be-grads covered the assignment drop boxes up.
This means that the assignments are not due until next May (right?).
Unfortunately, by the time we noticed it, someone who was unconvinced had torn the wrapping off.
