University of Chicago receives mystery package addressed to one Henry (Indiana) Jones Jr.University of Chicago receives mystery package addressed to one Henry (Indiana) Jones Jr.

An interesting read if only for the care and detail that went into the package itself. The package was received by the admissions department and reportedly almost thrown out until a student worker made the discovery. Could this be some new viral marketing in the making or a student with a really unique application package? Who knows - but either way, this is pretty neat.
