Residents of Holt Hall were evacuated early on Thursday, Oct. 19, after power lines intertwined with a fallen tree right outside of the building as a result of high-speed winds and heavy rain. The storm disconnected power to Holt around 2 a.m., including power to fire, smoke and CO2 detectors. It partially dis- connected power to Butterworth Hall. Residential Life, Eversource, Facilities Management and Campus Police worked to solve this issue, informing students who lived in those buildings via email they could return to their rooms at 8:35 p.m. that night.

Campus Police and Human Resources recently released the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report for the 2018 calendar year via an email. The report is released in accordance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act).
The Lasell College Campus Police website states, “The safety of our community rests with all of us…. Problems can be prevented if Campus Police is contacted whenever one detects suspicious behavior or individuals. The best security is prevention”. Up until March 31, I believed that Campus Police wanted to keep me and my fellow students safe…I was proven wrong.
Get to know campus police officer Brian Barnes as he allows editor Tristan Davis into his own police car for a conversation. The two talk about the recent clown hoax, and working on creating a familiar relationship between students and campus police. Please excuse a lesser audio quality due to the setting.
