Student Behind Rutgers’ Anonymous Post-it Notes Comes Clean

The Post-it notes have been showing up around the Rutgers University campus for months.

Each sticky note contains an inspiring quote—like “Be as happy as a bird with a French fry”—and a website address.

For two semesters, the identity of the prolific poster, who went by RU Post-it Anonymous, was a mystery. But over the last few weeks, sophomore Dan Munoz has been revealing himself as the phantom purveyor of quotes.

“At the beginning, I liked the idea of being anonymous,” Munoz, 20, told The Star-Ledger of Newark. “It hasn’t been as anonymous lately. I guess that’s inevitable.”
