Watch Northeastern’s annual egg and pumpkin drop
Boston Magazine - 10/09/2014
Generally speaking, a group of college students with a carton of eggs can only spell trouble. But on Thursday, a bunch of Northeastern students made a sizable splash with eggs and pumpkins behind the Gainsborough parking garage—all with the support and encouragement of their professors. That’s right—it’s college pumpkin drop season, everyone. As is tradition at other schools including MIT and BU—their pumpkin drops will take place later this month—several classes of engineering students at Northeastern were challenged by their professors to protect eggs and pumpkins to be dropped from a tall building.
