Breaking: Gunman on Yale Campus, Campus on Lockdown

Wesleying will provide updates as able.

At 10:50AM, a message was sent out to the Yale community placing the campus on lockdown. The following message was sent out:

Text message to the Yale Community, November 25 – 10:50 a.m.
Reports of person with gun on Central Campus. SHELTER IN PLACE until further notice.

The gunman was confirmed to be on campus just after 11AM, with Yale Police, New Haven Police, and State Police on the Yale campus searching for the gunman. Yale Daily News reports that the gunman was confirmed to be on Yale’s Old Campus, and New Haven Independent reports that the university was tipped off by a caller at 9:30AM saying that his roommate was armed and headed to campus to “shoot up the area.” Police stated that the caller had called anonymously through a pay phone, and have yet to identify the caller.

weSLAM Takes 1st @ WLPSI, Breaks Tie

Wesleyan has taken 1st place at the Wade-Lewis Poetry Slam Invitational at SUNY New Paltz.  An account follows.

The first night of WLPSI (Friday, March 5th) saw Wesleyan competing against NYU and UMinn-Macalester, and the finals (Saturday, March 6th) saw Wes competing against Brown, SUNY Oneonta, and UMinn-Macalester.

But on Saturday night, there was a tie between the final two teams.  Just as shocking?  One of the teams, University of Minnesota, is a veteran, well established in the slam world since its inception, while the other, Wesleyan, is a bouncing baby ze, having only started this year.
