A male student in a foreign language class was being confrontational with the instructor after he was dropped from the class for numerous absences. The student yelled at the instructor over her teaching methods. The instructor reported the incident to the security office because she was frightened with the way he was acting. Security officers made contact and referred the student to the dean of Student Discipline.

Security officers were approached outside the library about a former student heckling a student about smoking near the fountain on West Campus. The officers report that the former student had asked the student to put out his cigarette and that he complied. However, the former student continued to harass the student about smoking, following him to the footbridge and calling him a “clown” for smoking. Security talked to the two separately and warned the former student to stop harassing students on campus.

Security officers responded to a call from the Life Fitness Center about a student who was being disruptive and working out when he was not registered for a Life Fitness class.

The student was identified after going into the LFC directors’ office and complaining about employees being rude to him. Security asked him to leave and not return unless he was registered in a class there.
