CHICAGO, IL (June 16, 2016) — When I was attending North Park College, I tended to hear about student stunts and mischief more than I actually participated in them. It was back in the day when newly engaged men could be “tarred and feathered” with everything from Kool-Aid to dead fish. And streaking was still a popular form of self-expression. One student ran all the way to the el station in the buff. There were legends of pranks from an earlier time—such as a certain professor’s car being “transported” inside the library.
College years are ripe for practical jokes, and in honor of North Park University’s 125th anniversary, the Companion would like to hear your stories. Were you a prankster in college? Or did you fall victim to a prank or practical joke? We want to hear all about it.
