On Saturday, November 12, two male students reported to the Office of Public Safety that they had been harassed by three unknown male subjects inside the Emerson Hall residence hall.
According to the students, the incident began at 11:45 p.m. when they were outside of Emerson Hall and one of the subjects made a derogatory remark about the sexual orientation of one of the students. After a verbal exchange between the two parties, the students entered Emerson.
