    Yet another mass shooting

    A gunmen tried to take out Northern Illinois University today. LINK Omaha mall, Kirkwood, MO City Council meeting and now this. It's just a matter of time before this occurs in Iowa, probably on one of our campuses. Seems like you're beginning to hear about these things once a week.

    Re: Breaking News:Several people shot at Northern Illinois University

    I just saw in Reader's Digest that ISU was ranked as one of the campuses that had the possibility of not being safe because there is no security personnel in the dorms.
    I didn't know any school had security personnel in their dorms.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Breaking News:Several people shot at Northern Illinois University

    Why isn't there coverage of this anywhere on the main news channels?



    “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship,” Rhoads said. “That I can promise you.”

    "I hope to coach here until I retire," Hoiberg said.

    I'm glad I'm not in school/college anymore. This is terrible, why is this such a popular thing to do these days?

    Re: Breaking News:Several people shot at Northern Illinois University

    Not necessarily "security personnel" but many schools (a lot of privates) have a front desk where you have to swipe in to get access to the building and guests have to be signed in and accounted for--much like entrance to Lied Rec. Don't have a card or not a member/resident of the building/dorm? No entrance.

    Pardon me, but this isn't like tight rolling your jeans or wearing a scrunchy.

    People have been doing crazy stuff for years.

    It would be kind of hard to do this in a place like Friley.

    Re: Breaking News:Several people shot at Northern Illinois University

    As schools build new dorms, most are putting in front desks for checking in residents. Not many new dorms around the country are built like Friley.

    Several other campuses have staff at the hall desks 24/7 to monitor activity. I don't think ISU has the budget or is willing to spend the money on that kind of monitoring. I don't think it will be too long before the entire campus has security cards.

    Re: Breaking News:Several people shot at Northern Illinois University

    Doesn't ISU have something like this already in place? Most of the "new" dorms require your access card to get in, and if there is an open entrance, it's right by the hall desk.
