About a week ago, the Beacon was tipped off to a Youtube video made by an anonymous student showing a behind the scenes look as to what would happen if Rinker turned into an all boy’s dormitory hall. For the record, Rinker Hall is not becoming a co-ed dorm, and it never has been for that matter despite the subliminal message of the video.
We sat down with the anonymous creator of the video to find out why he or she made the video and why they don’t think the video has offensive content.
Beacon Blog: Who was responsible for putting the video together and why did they decide to make a video like that?
Video Creator: I just thought it would provide a little humor for students. I was hoping people would see it and laugh a little; which is something that seems to happen so seldom. Where have pranks and practical jokes gone other than on The Bacon?
BB: What kind of message are you trying to send with that movie?
VC: Truly, there is no direct message, other than I think if it happened that Rinker went co-ed it would be overthrowing our only male dorm. It was just a creative spin I thought of, I think PBA students would find it and laugh. Continue reading
The following stories are part of the special April Fools edition of the Beacon newspaper. Beacon staff members, along with our friends at the Bacon, put together a special issue of the Beacon newspaper titled, “The Sea Kitten.” Wondering where the name came from? This February, the People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) contacted PBA, suggesting the university ditch its mascot “Sailfish Jack” for a friendlier made up animal, a “Sea Kitten.” Dr. Clark made it clear to students that week that the university has no intention of changing its mascot.

Animal Fight Club at Campus /By: Twitter Thug
Palm Beach Atlantic University has unveiled a fight club operating in the underworld community of students. However, this is no ordinary fight club with Brad Pitt and Edward Norton; this fight club consists of doped-up lab rats, thuggish campus lizards and lightsaber-fighting squirrels.
Supposedly, the lab rats and squirrels are escaped experimental party specimens. They are very prone to rambunctious behavior when hearing any form of techno music; the music ignites the ecstasy and foxy roxy coursing through their tiny veins.
On the other hand, the thuggish campus lizards are said to be genetically-enhanced hybrid curly-tail iguana lizards that we see scurrying around campus. It is said by an anonymous pharmacy student that they know of a student, who is experimenting on the lizards with a new form of steroid.
Perhaps the most disturbing issue is the report of the losing fighter is viciously disposed of in the mantra of Michael Vick. The remains are sold to the chain of Road-Kill Cafes that are opening everywhere. In fact, there is a proposal with the city to open a RKC, where Samaritan Gardens is located.
It is already enough that PBA sponsors Roach Races. Now we have “Pinky and the Brain” to root for. Continue reading
