Blizzard cuts power to College and town
by Kate Antognini and Jesse Baer
Jessica Pearlman just wanted to turn on her computer. But for a few seconds Tuesday
night, she thought she had turned off the campus.
So I had this little surprise birthday party, Pearlman said. I still had a lot of
work to do. Hours and hours it was ridiculous. I went to turn on my computer as people were
leaving, and a loud boom came from my speakers, whereupon all the lights in my room went off. We looked
in the hallway and all the lights had gone off in the hallway. We looked outside and all the lights
had gone off there. And then the entire campus broke out into chaos.

Judical summary for Fall 2002
To the Editors:
Over 110 cases involving alleged violations of the Code of Conduct were reported to the Judicial Coordinator
during the fall semester, an increase from 80 cases a year ago. An explanation for the increase is
that low-level violations of the alcohol policy (i.e. underage drinking and open container), often
heard by members of the Office of Residential Life in the past, are now referred to the Judicial Coordinator
for reasons of record keeping and consistency. While the majority (96 percent) of cases were heard
by the Judicial Coordinator, at the request of the Respondents and because they were certain to result
in sanctions less than suspension, situations potentially resulting in probation and suspension were
heard by members of the Judicial or Community Board.
