Living in Carman can sometimes resemble wading through a disaster zone. Last night was one of those times. Freshman flood survivor Kurt Kanazawa reports: 

kkLast night, the explosion of a hot water pipe in the bathroom of suite 1103 set off a fire alarm and covered half the floor with about an inch of water.  Only one person in the suite was in town – Nicholas.  Residents immediately helped Nicholas evacuate

his and his suitemate’s room, pulling out bottom drawers, snack kits underneath the bed, light/laptop/cellphone chargers, carpet, refrigerator etc..  The flood also spread and invaded about 2 other suites on the floor, whose damage varied.

While inactive authorities stood on the outside observing, students – some friends of the suitemates, others complete strangers – lifted their pants and got their shoes wet to get things out, stacking them all in the hall near the elevator. Many tourist-students attempted to exit the elevator to observe the damage and were shoved back into the elevator by campus security.

    Carman was a dry dorm? *rimshot*

  4. speaking of  

    campus security: i just walked into Wien and brought my card for scan up to the desk of a one C. Maxwell. no response, took me a while to realize he was asleep.

    he's a slow asshole but im not saying this because i want him to lose his job, though maybe he should: what is your purpose as a security guard if you fall asleep?

    honestly, id rather pay less tuition that employ this bullshitter.

  5. Do the  

    security guards make anyone feel any safer? Anyone? Really?
