Stevens under “Campus Alert”
Updated with picture of burnt door…
4/23/2008 2:40pm Update:
One student told Hoboken411 that it was a door that was set on fire in the dorm. Additionally, it was a “bomb threat” type note which was left, resulting in the searching of all buildings on campus (still ongoing).
The student suspected that this person didn’t have his project ready for the year-end Senior Design competition. Each year, students in each respective field team up and present what they’ve learned. I suppose “How to engineer a calculated disruption of an entire college campus” was not one of the official entries.
Apparently some trouble brewing over at Stevens Institute. An arson investigation is underway for a fire last night, and restrictions are in place on the campus. Not sure if this was trouble between students, or something worse.
Stevens Campus Alert
On Tuesday, April 22, 2008, there was a case of arson on the fourth floor of Davis Hall, the Hoboken Fire Department responded and there were no injuries or serious damage. An arson investigation is underway. In addition, a threatening note was found in the fourth floor bathroom on Wednesday, April 23rd at approximately 8:30 a.m.
Effective immediately campus police officers will be posted at the main entry way of Davis Hall and all bags will be checked. The side doors will be closed for entry. Only Davis residents with valid IDs will be permitted in the building.
All members of the campus community are asked to have their Stevens ID available on their person.
Here are some pictures from the campus today, provided by David Pfeffer from “The Stute.”
