Grad Pranks

Graduating Class Pranks are a tradition of engineering that dates back many decades. Graduating classes have been known to erect monuments or engineering showpieces to demonstrate their class spirit and superiority.

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, grad pranks became ever more popular, with classes determined to out-do each other with 'permanent' structures rather than ones that were easily removed. However, some pranks were forcibly removed by the University, and billed to the Engineering Society. Eventually, these permanent pranks were discouraged and banned in practice by the Engineering Society, which passed a policy which withheld discipline club funding until discipline grad pranks were fully removed.

Some grad pranks are still visible today, such as EngSci's concrete Iron Ring around a pillar in the Atrium, and Civ's red letters on top of the main doors of the Sandford Fleming Building.
