NC State campus alert may be tied to ‘Zombies vs. Humans’ fundraiser

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (WTVD) — NC State’s emergency alert system is warning students of two unconfirmed reports of subjects carrying guns on campus.

Around noon, witnesses reported a white male possibly carrying a gun. He was reported to be around 20 years old wearing a striped toboggan hat, tan jacket and baggy blue jeans. He was headed toward Riddick Hall.

Around 10:43 a.m., witnesses reported a college age heavy set white male wearing a blue toboggan hat, dark jacket, dark pants walking on Current Drive toward Hillsborough Street.

Neither report has been verified by Campus Police.

A campus spokesperson told ABC11 that the warning to students was sent out as a precaution.

Some students speculated the sightings could be related to the weeklong “Zombies vs. Humans” fundraiser on campus where students battle other students dressed as zombies with Nerf guns and other weapons in a charity fundraiser.

The reports came a day after the campus at Wake Tech was locked down after a phoned in threat of a gun.

A person has been arrested in that incident.

UNC chief recommends 8.8 percent tuition increase

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

Associated Press

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The president of the 16-campus University of North Carolina system is recommending tuition and fee increases that would average about $470, or 8.8 percent, for the next school year.

President Tom Ross made his recommendations in a letter to the UNC Board of Governors released Wednesday. The board will vote on the recommendations at its Feb. 10 meeting.

Ross wants tuition increases to be under 10 percent at every school in the system. Seven schools, including North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, had requested increases above that level.

Ross says he wants to balance the need to make up for reduced state funding with the ability of families to afford higher costs.

The recommendations also call for increases in the following school year.
