This week we bring you the final part in the “Case of the Missing Final Exams”. After the exams were stolen and administration got involved, professors were left to hand out exams that had already been previously released.

One professor handed out his exam but then wrote four very different problems on the board for students to solve. Another was reported to have “used nearly half of one of his final exam periods to blast the students ‘who would do such a thing as this,’” according to the Daily Campus.

For future final exams printed in the Division of Communications print shop, exams were kept in locked cabinets and then disposed of at different intervals.

The fraternity involved was never released and the students got away; one graduated, one continued their studies at the university and one flunked out.
