Campus Security Update: Housing Day
Tuesday, April 4 was Assessment Day for professors, which in turn meant it was Housing Day for the students. No one had classes, but the Hunger Games of housing was going down in the Grey Gym. For many students, Housing Day is an opportunity to do your own thing and have a drink or two… or three… To no one’s surprise, Marist Security had a field day on the day before Housing Day, when students were preparing for the festivities.
Around 3 p.m., a Leo Hall resident director noticed that one of the dorm room windows was open. Although this in and of itself is generally unsuspicious, the smell that accompanied the open window led the RD to believe wrongful activity was ensuing. Upon following the smell and finding the room, three students were caught with weed and paraphernalia, which were all confiscated. Needless to say, these students will not be opening their windows any time soon.
A Marist Security officer patrolling near Route 9 noticed two students with backpacks cross the street at 2:30 p.m. A few minutes later, the pair crossed back over to campus, this time with their backpacks seemingly weighed down by what could only be one thing. The sharp officer stopped the students and checked their bags, and unshockingly found a 36-pack of Bud Light in each. We applaud the students’ efforts, but they just weren’t stealthy enough to bypass Marist Security this time.
‘Twas the night before Housing Day when all through Midrise… someone stole an ‘Exit’ sign. At 1:30 a.m. on that rare but coveted Monday-into-Tuesday where students can go out to the bars without feeling bad about it the next day, a Midrise resident took the liberty to remove an exit sign from the wall to keep as his own. Perhaps he was having trouble finding the door to his suite and needed a sign to remind him? Regardless, now all students are trapped in Midrise, as no one knows where the exit is anymore.↑ Back to top
