In Response to: Pranks for the memories

I don’t know whether this qualifies as a prank, but just before Reunions in 1968 my roommates and I hung a sheet from the then-unfinished Fine math tower. In the sheet we had written “COEDUCATION NOW!” in big red letters. There were no working elevators, so to do this we had to climb all 13 stories of stairs, exposed to the elements.  

The banner faced the campus throughout Reunions. It’s my fantasy that it had something to do with the decision during the following year to implement coeducation.
