1982—It was so difficult for professors to find chalk near the blackboards that one renegade professor challenged the university’s president to fix the problem.
“Day after day, room after room, there is no chalk at all,” said engineering instructor Paul Adams, who once went to four different classrooms and still couldn’t find any chalk.
He blamed the epidemic on staff who absentmindedly pocketed the chalk and, of course, on the students who threw it at each other.
Adams didn’t want to bring his own materials to class because it would make his clothes “chalky.”
1987—More than one hundred people signed a petition to reopen four Jorgenson Hall washrooms the university closed down because they weren’t being used enough.
