A Statement on the College Fest Activities

A day long planned College Fest celebration drew participants from outside the area today. Warm weather mixed with alcohol has contributed to events getting out of control this evening.

All activity has occurred off campus and everything is quiet at this time. The university secured campus buildings in the area as a preventive measure. There have reportedly been approximately 125 arrests. It is unknown at this time how many of the arrests are students. No injuries have been reported.

The university is disappointed in the events that have occurred and finds the behavior inexcusable. More information will be posted to the university Web site as it becomes available.
