Baker House Piano Drop (2010)

Observing tradition and reducing stress, MIT students commemorate Drop Day—the final day students can drop a class—by pushing an upright (broken) piano off the roof of Baker House. Piano Drop has been held irregularly since the initial drop in 1972 but the annual tradition returned with renewed popularity in 2006. See the entire 2010 piano drop at the DV Lab collection on TechTV.
