Bike thief too quick in dramatic chase

3.  A student notified Security after that student’s bike was stolen from outside of Todd Union on Friday, Oct. 14 at 11:01 p.m. The individual saw and pursued the suspect who was riding the bike up the ramp between Strong Auditorium and Lattimore Hall, Lafferty said.

The student called Security while following the suspect, who dropped the bike as he came up the stairs outside Meliora Hall facing Harkness Hall and ran back down the stairs.

Officers checked the surrounding areas for the suspect with negative results. The victim said that the cable bike lock on the bike had been cut and taken by the suspect. The victim decided not to file a police report.

Excessive studying sounds the alarm

4. The intrusion alarm at Rush Rhees Library was activated on Friday, Oct. 14 at 10:28 p.m.

Gas just keeps leaking on Intercampus Drive

5.  Security responded to a report of a vehicle leaking gas in the Intercampus Drive Lot on Monday, Oct. 17 at 10:35 p.m.

Officers discovered a considerable amount of gas that had leaked from a parked vehicle. The Rochester Fire Department was notified and responded to cover the leaked gas with grease absorbant.

While on scene for the first leak, another vehicle leaking gas further down the lot was reported by the owner of the car. The Fire Department proceeded to place absorbant material on this gas as well.

Initial reports indicate that one vehicle had a puncture of some sort in a gas line and that the second had a puncture in the gas tank itself, according to Lafferty.

The cause of the punctures has yet to be determined, and Security is still  unclear as to whether the two incidents are related.

When it starts to smell like home

Yet, in random moments, when a smell catches me off guard with the memories it brings, I like to believe the things I feel then are things people feel when they are home.

The best routine is the one you stick to

But even as we run from our past selves, we fall short once we realize the finish line is beyond years away, and our rushed pace is nothing but a one-way ticket to burnout.

Your River Campus bathroom horoscope

Maybe it's messy, the drains are always clogged, and it smells weird, but at the end of the day, that first-year quad bathroom raised you.
