Community Standards Updated in Response to Issues with Bikes and Scooters

By Laken Franchetti, News Editor

On Wednesday, Director of Student Rights and Responsibilities Elizabeth Farner sent a campus-wide email detailing an addition to the Community Standards related to bikes, skateboards and electric scooters.

She began the email by detailing the importance of residential safety within the campus community.  It was reported that there were incidents in the fall semester with bikes and scooters inside campus buildings.  A new policy can be found regarding these items so that their use is restricted from the indoors, and the disrespect of other’s property is prohibited.

“Attempted or actual theft and/or damage to property of the College or property of a member of the College community or other personal or public property, on or off campus, is prohibited,” said Farner.

She concluded the email by reminding the student body that riding or operating bikes, skateboards or scooters inside of college buildings is prohibited behavior under this rule.
