Ever wanted to dedicate a urinal? Tau Kappa Epsilon and Pi Kappa Alpha did.

During a discussion about naming opportunities at a director’s meeting of the alumni association, the topic of restrooms and fixtures came up. There were objections because, well, it didn’t seem proper. But Chris Ramsay, MetE’83, MS MetE’85, thought it was a funny idea to dedicate urinals to various people.

“A group of Pikes purchased a urinal in honor of our friends at Tau Kappa Epsilon, and our friends at TKE have committed to purchase one in honor of the Alpha Kappa chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha. Everybody had a big laugh,” Ramsay says. “And this silliness raised an additional $10,000 for the Hasselmann House.”
