A Barnard source just confirmed the troubling lice epidemic currently plaguing the 8th floor of Sulzberger hall in the Barnard Quad. Apparently, one first-year had lice and the little bugs quickly migrated into the heads of several other first-year students. Says Steve Tollman, associate director of Res Life at BC:

“Recently, there have been several cases of students with head lice

within the Quad.  It’s important to use caution when sharing

clothing, brushes and bedding like pillows and sheets, as this is the

most common way that head lice is spread.  Please know that this is

easily treatable.  Any student that believes she has head lice or has

been exposed to head lice is encouraged to visit Health Services for

evaluation and treatment.”

Ew, gross me out royal.
