To celebrate past April Fool's Day pranks, here are two examples from the college archives.  To see more photos, visit Carleton's Facebook page.

 

Metal bug sculputure prank

The first attempt to remove this large iron sculpture of a bug from the library to Sayles Hill was foiled by a zealous security guard at 2:10am, Apr. 1, 1993, when he met 10 students exiting the library carrying bug parts.

 

Horse in Musser Hall prank 

A horse invited inside Musser Hall, an incident recalled in the January 20, 1989 issue of the Carletonian article.
