    Willow Hall?

    I'm a current ISU student who's home for spring break in Des Moines. I just got a text and call from ISU Alert, our new system incase things like VT or Northern Illinois happen, saying there's a potential gunman on the loose in Willow Hall. Something about African-American, 6'0, with a tattoo on his neck in a blue and white jacket. I can't remember the rest of the message.

    If anyone has friends in Willow Hall, or is in Willow Hall and hasn't heard this already, I was just putting it out there. This is the first time this system has been used, and although most people should be gone on break it's 2 in the morning and who knows how many people are aware of this!

    Scary stuff. Hope everyone's OK.


    My first ISU basketball game - Fred Hoiberg was on the court.
    My first ISU football game - Paul Rhoads was on the sidelines.
    But they hadn't yet reached their full potential.

    SO PROUD that things have come full circle. #cyclONEnation

    At least most of the students are probably gone on spring break.

    Except, UNI's gunman wasn't on campus, he was picked up in the DM area i believe. It was more of a text message threat.

    The ISU gunman is actually in a dorm on campus.

    But, still, seems like a lot of stupid people out there doing stupid things.

    Re: ISU Campus Alert

    I didn't get it, but I just got texts from friends, glad i'm home.



    “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.

    Re: ISU Campus Alert

    It's most likely that someone just has/had a gun and hasn't actually taken any shots. If that's the case, it isn't the first time and it won't be the last.
