A defrosting fridge hampered the start of one female resident’s Thanksgiving break.
On Nov. 21 at about 11:20 a.m., a female staff member from Wright Hall alerted Public Safety of a water issue within the building. When the officers arrived, the staff member told them that at about 9:45 a.m., she found water leaking from the ceiling in one of the rooms while she was doing room inspections.
She said she notified Facilities as well and they were able to enter the room above and discover that a fridge was unplugged and had defrosted, causing the water to drip into the room below. Public Safety then contacted Unicco, who cleaned the room as well as the resident’s bedding, which was directly under the water’s drip.
A male staff member in Poyda Hall became aware of a few unwelcomed surprises on Nov. 20.
At 1:27 p.m., he told Public Safety officers that around 9 a.m., he found two soda containers that contained suspected urine on the floor of one of the hallways. He reported that he disposed of both of them. The staff member went on to say that later in the day, two more bottles fill with suspected urine were found in the hallway. This time, a profanity-filled note was attached to one of the bottles.
An investigation of the incident is ongoing. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Public Safety at x5029.
On Nov. 19, a male staff member arrived at Public Safety’s office at 8:30 a.m. to turn in a booze-filled book bag. The staff member told the officers that he found the bag in the baseball fields that morning. Public Safety opened the bag and found seven unopened beer cans, a wallet and other items. There was no cash in the wallet, but the officers were able to locate an ID. It was later discovered that the student who owned the wallet was underage.
Public Safety officers called the male student and informed him that he could come by Public Safety’s office and reclaim most of the items except the confiscated alcohol. The matter has since been referred to the Office of Community Standards.
