Students return to Lawrence Hall following one of five fire alarms to go off between Friday afternoon and Monday morning. In an email sent on Monday afternoon to Lawrence Hall residents, Dean Michael Gieseke explained the cause of the frequent fire alarms was due to water pressure variations from the city lines causing two of the flow sensors to malfunction. This semester, Lawrence Hall residents have also experienced a record setting heat wave in a building with no air conditioning and several students have reported flooding in their dorm rooms.
