Several people were observed standing in a line across the sidewalk blocking the entrance steps of Morey Hall facing Crosby Hall, according to UR Security Investigator Dan Lafferty.

Persons trying to enter or depart the building were observed walking around the group of nine who were blocking the walk.

When someone stood in front of them, they would let them walk by then quickly return to their place in line, according to UR Security.

The students were identified as potential members of Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity. A member of the fraternity claimed that they had been doing the ritual for over 100 years.

They were told that they had to step aside when people approached. Later, they were spoken to by Dean of The College William Green, according to UR Security.

After determining they had no legitimate business on campus, the two were escorted from the property without incident.
