Philip Khoury, an LSA freshman and resident of
Baits Residence Hall, said he feels safe living in the
residence hall because it is removed from central
campus where the incidents took place.
"You feel secure when you're not secure because
(Baits) is so far out nobody'll mess with you," he said.
Khoury said he believes the University is taking the
necessary precautions to keep the campus safe by
locking the residence halls.

information about the snow emergency
The city decided that temporary signs
were too expensive and labor-intensive
to justify the cost, Wheeler said.
Last week's snowstorm was the first
time the law had been put into effect.
Previously the city rarely restricted
parking during snow storms.
Wheeler said although the city coun-
cil set the fine, the public services
department recommended the $125
During a December 2000 snowstorm,
the city used tow trucks to temporarily
move vehicles to clear narrow streets.
"It cost us about $125 per car last
year to plow," Wheeler said. "It was a
losing financial operation."
Some students say the fine should be
reduced. "They sent people out there to
generate revenue," said Behnan.
"Obviously people didn't know about it.
