Early morning argument
An altercation that just didn’t sit right. On Dec. 3 at 3:29 a.m., Public Safety was dispatched to Wright Hall on the report of an argument between a male student and a female student.

Sound the alarm
What an interesting flavor of popcorn. On Dec. 2 at 1:21 a.m., Public Safety was dispatched to Kroner Hall on report of a fire alarm. Upon arrival, officers met with a student who initially claimed the cause of the smoke was a bag of popcorn. Officers entered the room and concluded it did not smell like popcorn, prompting the student in question to admit he was vaping. The student is being charged with fire safety and hazard violations and the matter has been referred to the Office of Community Standards.
His heater took a break, too. On Nov. 27 at 8 p.m., Public Safety was dispatched to Hill Hall in reference to a student who found a water leak in his room after returning from Thanksgiving break. The student claimed that, before leaving Monday Nov. 21, there was no leak present within the room. After returning, though, the heating unit had leaked onto the carpet. Facilities was notified and is working to repair the damage.
