This fall, Northeastern students, faculty and staff will have to leave the butts at home - the school tomorrow will announce plans for a smoke-free campus, both indoors and outside. In an e-mail to students today, Terry Fulmer, dean of Bouvé College of Health Sciences writes:
UPDATE, 3:20 p.m: Northeastern says two students "have accepted responsibility for vandalizing the university's Menorah" and that they now face disciplinary action. Still no word on just what they did.
Northeastern President Joseph Aoun alerted his campus in e-mail this morning. He didn't specify just how the Krentzman Quad menorah was damaged, but said it's been repaired and that campus police are hunting suspects. His e-mail:
The Huntington News reports that campus police were summoned to a dorm early one recent morning on a noise complaint from an anonymous student, they quickly learned from a resident assistant what the real problem was:
The officers spoke to an RA who stated the student is overzealous regarding other people living on the floor and often complains of people opening and shutting doors. Officers reported that there was no noise coming from the room the student called about. The department of Housing and Residential Life is handling the issue.
Ed. note: Oh my God, it's like my freshman roommate has come back to life and transferred to Northeastern. Dude kept unscrewing and hiding the lightbulbs in our room because he went to sleep earlier than me.
Huntington News reports that when Northeastern police asked a particular student about her alleged drug sales, "she admitted she supplied friends with drugs for money, but insisted that she was not a dealer because she didn't make enough profit."
Wicked Local Allston/Brighton reports on a mega-keggah on Linden Street in Allston that apparently featured sentries: When the cops showed up around 1:30 a.m. on Sept. 20, a couple dozen people began running outside yelling "the party's over!"
Meanwhile, the Huntington News reports one Husky needed to have his scalp stapled back together after he was knocked down during a fight at a party on Symphony Road around 2 a.m. on Sept. 27.
Grads won't get traditional handshakes tomorrow. Or as James T. Kirk might say: SWIIIIINE!
The Huntington News reveals they were "students ... participating in Northeastern's third annual Husky Hunt, a city-wide 24-hour scavenger hunt."
