April Fool's Day 2012 - University Edition

By April 1, 2012

Follow me on:

The Crimson White Gotta love it - April Fool's Day typically plays out on college campuses far more entertainingly than it does anywhere else and 2012 is no exception. This year, we've got the University of Alabama's campus newspaper reporting on plans to turn its president's house into a sorority, while new chancellor Robert Witt announced the creation of a "moon-like, weaponized space station that will also serve as the fourth UA campus." (Perhaps they can team up with Bryn Mawr, which announced its partnership with an intergalactic, alien research university last year.)

Meanwhile at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, campus officials are planning to meet enrollment goals by including bedbugs in their student count. George Washington University has replaced its commencement speaker - New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg - with Charlie Sheen who will discuss "Winning!"

And Drexel University officials were excited to announce the enrollment of Harry Potter's squib daughter, Lily, while soccer star David Beckham is joining the Drexel athletic department to launch a new shin-kicking team.
