Pi-ers get a chance to buy pies for $5 and choose when their friends and professors will get pied. Pi-ees are notified of there pi-ing at the beginning of the class and can choose if they wish to participate in the event. If they do choose to participate, pi-ees have three options:
- Redirect the pie for $5
- Neutralize the pie for $10
- The most fun of all, they can choose to accept the pie in the face
The Great Engineering Pi-Throw is a very enjoyable time of the year when you can watch friends experience a good ole pie in the face, and donate to charity as well. Each year, there is a buzz in the air when Pi-Throw approaches and students can be seen scurrying to the nearest ATM machine to pick up some "protection money". Be sure to mark the Great Engineering Pi-Throw in your calendar and as the date approaches you may consider bringing along some "protection money".
