Medill junior Amber Sasse’s friends painted the rock to celebrate her 21st birthday on Feb 23.
Sasse said in a Facebook message: “My friends Amanda Oaklander and Lauren Alexander painted the rock… I had no idea they were going to paint it. It was a total surprise when I went to class that morning. I know they wanted to paint ‘Bringing Sasse Back’ (because my last name is pronounced like the adjective sassy) but it didn’t fit on the face of the rock so they settled for something else.”
Guess the favor was returned — Oaklander had her own Rock painted, once upon a time.
