Ah those crazy college kids

Or: I hate it when my alma mater makes the news for something this stupid.



Students get text-message alert -- of foam gun

November 1, 2007

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio -- Reports of a gunman entering a residence hall prompted Wittenberg University to text-message students with a security alert -- but it turned out to be a prank.

Tuesday night's scare was supposed to be a birthday joke, and the gun fired only soft foam projectiles, police said. But because the gun violated the university's zero-tolerance policy, five students were taken into custody.

Wittenberg began the text messaging service after the April shootings at Virginia Tech, where a student killed 32 people before killing himself.

I think it's cool when you have an alma mater like Wittenberg because it sounds quaint and charming even before you explain what it is like.
