Fallen tree results in dangerous and extreme campus conditions Reply

 

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.

Natalie Kfoury – Co-Editor-in-Chief

Lasell College will offer gender neutral housing for the Fall 2014 semester. The decision was a joint effort between Student Government Association (SGA) and Residential Life.
