ST. PETER, Minn. – A science professor at Gustavus Adolphus College left for a week's vacation this summer and returned to a shiny office. Very shiny.
Professor Scott Bur's students had covered his office in aluminum foil. Computer screen, chairs, the ceiling, the floor — all covered in foil. Books and pens were individually wrapped, so was the phone, a ball cap, a bottle and the coffee maker.
Bur said it's a sort of tradition among his research group. He goes on vacation and when he comes back there's ... something.
That last time it happened, his office was decorated for a fairy princess. Pink fabric and bows covered everything. The pink glow from the office could been across campus.
Senior Kristen Jahr said the foil prank required 10, 200-foot rolls of foil.
