A Liberal Arts faculty member just reported to our office that an individual came to his office today who said his name was Mark D——. He said he was a communication studies student and asked for donations to “get him to the BBC.” Our office checked with Communication Studies, and they said they have no student by that name. Certainly this solicitation is not authorized by that department nor the Dean’s Office. If this fellow shows up at your office, please send him to the Dean’s Office. If you need assistance, please contact us or the Baa Ram U. police.
Random criminals casing the joint and trying to shake down the faculty when they’re in their offices: awesome! This is slightly more creative than the students who crawled around through our dropped ceilings and broke into faculty offices to steal copies of exams. (Other than some purse snatchings from open offices, that’s the sum total of our crime report in the College of Liberal Arts most years.)
