TO THE EDITOR:
In the early hours of March 31, the first floor of McIver Residence Hall was vandalized. The bulletin board was spray painted, as well as Andrea Pino’s door. Additionally, a knife that was painted red was left in the kitchen. This act has left me feeling unsafe and questioning my university’s ability to keep its residents safe.
Not only has there been no Alert Carolina response regarding a serious threat to our community, but there has been absolutely no response from RHA, campus housing or DPS. When residents have called DPS requesting a follow-up to the incident, their requests were merely ignored. No further action has been taken besides the initial report by the RA on duty.
Andrea deserves to be respected because she has been so supportive of her residents and friends in their darkest times, and we will support her in hers.
There is no telling what might have happened if one of the residents were to leave his or her room at the time where such acts were taking place. I request that appropriate action be taken by the proper offices. My fellow residents and I have a right to a safe living environment, and that environment was compromised.
