Tuesday, April 197:58 a.m. – Alarm call in the Campus Center. Everything was OK.

Wednesday, April 201:35 p.m. – Trashcan fire in Wheatley Hall near the Snowden Auditorium. Fire was extinguished-but at what price glory?

3:14 p.m. – Disturbance reported in the Healey Building computer lab. Apparently there was a disagreement as to whether Wolverine or Sabertooth would be victorious in a hypothetical battle.

Saturday, April 2312:48 p.m. – Motor vehicle accident outside of the Healey Building. Truck drove into the ceiling of the Lower Level breaking open a pipe, once and for all disproving the widespread notion that the maximum height signs are just empty threats.

1:49 p.m. – Medical assistance needed in the Clark Center. Party was OK and did not need any further medical attention. For now…

4:36 p.m. – Disturbance in the lower busway. A fight broke out causing a group of over 160 people to block traffic, refusing to disperse… just another Saturday at UMass Boston. We don’t take kindly to a ruckus ’round here, this ain’t UMass Amhrest.

Party later posted a threatening message on MySpace.com directed at a lab consultant, resulting in a bitter AOL Instant Messenger battle. All because he tried to print an 11-page synopsis of the series finale of Dawson’s Creek, clearly exceeding the 10-page printing limit.
