President Rick Gallot said in an Oct. 17 news conference, "We will announce plans to further limit extracurricular campus activities and non-student access to the campus going forward. No one is more concerned than I am right now. Our students come here for an education, and far too often, it's outsiders who have created this situation that has put life and limb in danger."
