At college, it’s usually the students who do the pranks. But at the University of Delaware earlier this month, administrators turned the tables for, of all things, an emergency preparedness drill. According to an article (and video report) fromÂ WDEL-AM:
University of Delaware students lined up for what they were told was going to be a “GREEK” group picture but soon learned organizers had other plans.Â As students filed into Delaware Stadium they learned they weren’t just there for a picture but to practice emergency evacuation procedures.Â Around 2,000 students showed up for the drill before being dismissed to the Bob Carpenter Center for the picture.
That’s a ‘bait and switch’ for a good cause.
