Postsecondary institutions release April Fool’s announcements

April 4, 2022
A variety of postsecondary institutions celebrated April Fool’s Day on Friday with spoof announcements focused on animals. Mount Saint Vincent University announced the launch of a Bachelor of Crow-munications, which would offer students courses such as Crisis Crow-munications: When Feathers Ruffle and Stakeholder Engagement: the Shiny Object Effect. Vancouver Community College announced a new mascot – Rainy the Racoon – who would be an example of hand washing and mask wearing. Camosun College announced a rebranding of its athletics as the Camosun Mustangs. “While a Dodge Charger is a great car, I’ve always been a big fan of Ford Mustangs,” admitted Camosun President Lane Trotter. “Thank you to the student-athletes and staff for understanding my preference. It means a lot to me.” Camosun further advised that it would be using a donkey as mascot until a suitable horse was found. MSVU | VCC | Camosun (National)
