On Saturday, February 7, a passerby noticed that Main Building was flooding and raining from inside. It is not certain at this point if the source of the leak was caused by water pipes freezing and bursting open after thawing, or if the pipes were simply old and rusty, although it is more likely the former. At noon the following Monday, students, faculty, staff, and a number of villagers gathered to protest the University’s neglect towards Main, as well as other buildings. A number of reporters from various local media outlets covered the story. Links are posted below all the photos.
