Last night at approximately 12:15 a.m. (Friday, February 8), a student reported a suspicious person standing outside of the Brentano Walnut side entrance possibly trying to gain entrance to the building. The individual was described as male, tall, early 20’s, African-American, wearing a blue hoodie. Security officers searched the immediate area around Morton and Brentano and Residence Life staff checked the interior areas of the buildings.

Residence Life staff and security officers searched each floor of both buildings and checked all of the exterior doors. No one matching the description of the person was found.
