Imagining the audience in its underwear didn’t work too well for a female resident student, who fainted while giving a presentation in front of her class on Monday, Dec. 5, at 8:44 a.m.
Public Safety and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) arrived at Memorial Hall and met with the student’s professor, who said that the student passed out while presenting.
When EMTs met with the student, she was alert and conscious. She recalled feeling hot and dizzy, and then suddenly going blank. Public Safety officers offered to escort the student to a hospital, but she declined further medical treatment.
Public Safety reported an act of vehicular criminal mischief at 2:08 a.m., on Saturday, Dec. 3.
While responding to a separate incident at Conover Hall, a Public Safety officer noticed a vehicle traveling quickly toward North Gate, the gate between Conover Hall and the residence of the Dean of Students. Students in Conover Hall later reported that they witnessed the vehicle driving through the locked gate.
Further investigation revealed that the suspect broke the arm of the gate. The estimated cost of the damages is unknown; however, the investigation is continuing. Witnesses said the vehicle was silver and possibly a Honda Civic. Public Safety asks anyone with additional information about the incident to call x5029.
One student was feeling slightly adventurous before she fell while attempting to jump down the last half of a flight of stairs in Lake House at 11 p.m., on Monday, Dec. 5.

She was provided further medical treatment at the Health Center.
