The music department increased security measures in the basement of the Academic Center this year after a rash of instrument thefts last spring totaled more than $20,000 in losses. Facilities Management moved the lockers that used to the hallways of the department into room B-112 this year. Students access the room by swiping GWorld cards […]

Counterfeit bills found in Marvin Center

University Police recovered at least $480 in counterfeit bills from eight locations in the Marvin Center last weekend. Marvin Center officials said cashiers have been extra vigilant this week to spot fake currency. Aramark employees called UPD Friday night after they noticed one of the $20 bills in a register looked “suspicious.” The bill was […]
