CAMPUS ALERT: Former Food Service Worker Makes Threats Against Former Co-Workers

The Campus Alert System was activated today to report  that a former food services worker has made threats against former co-workers.

The threat was allegedly made by Ronald Scott Science, who according to sources made pizza at Gilman Dining Hall.

A quick search of the suspect shows 33 items, which lists mostly traffic violations, but does include an assault charge.  This was confirmed by a 2004 notice from the Washington County Sheriff.  Also, he was charged with domestic violence in 2007.

Here is the full release from the College’s Timely Notification report.  You can also listen to the notification, which mentions Science’s name, at this link.

Marietta College Police were notified late this afternoon that a former food service employee has allegedly issued threats against his former co-workers and could be contemplating a return to campus with the intent to do them harm.

The College Police are working with the Marietta City Police to locate the suspect, Ronald Scott Science.

All Marietta College students, faculty and staff are asked to be alert to this threat and report any suspicious or erratic behaviors to campus police immediately.

Please do not attempt to intervene should you witness a dispute between food service employees and, once again, notify campus police immediately.

Please stay tuned to Writing on the Mall for the latest news regarding this case.

Meal Plan Prices Movin' On Up

DSCF0991While meal plan prices are movin’ on up, that doesn’t necessarily mean that we’ve finally gotten a piece of that pie.

If you noticed on your statements for the Fall semester, the price of a traditional meal plan has gone up nearly $80, from $1,760 to $1,823.  Very miniscule compared to the overall price increase that the students saw for the full price of attending Marietta.  But this is a reasonable price increase due to inflation and the fact that there is now a fourth eatery on campus.  More staffing and greater food choices are worth the $80 a semester.

The increase also affects Unlimited and Super 3 plans, which are actually the best values on campus if you use them all (according to the math done below).  While the Unlimited plan is very restrictive (only available to use at Gilman Dining Hall, but 300 declining balance points to use at Izzy’s, Gilman Express, or Chlapaty Cafe), it is the best value on campus (if you ate there 3 times a day all week).  The Super 3 is a great idea for those that have odd schedules, since you can eat at any time throughout the day at any location, and is the second cheapest per meal plan on campus.  Both plans are $1,920, up from $1,845.

For those of you interested, here are all the numbers broken down:

Greek Week 2009 Preview

The Best Greek Week EVER (!!) is starting Saturday night, and you need a map to get through all the events that are on tap.

Events start Saturday morning and continue through the following Friday.

Saturday, March 28th

Community Service Day
The Greek community will be helping out across the community Saturday Morning, splitting into ten groups.  Groups will be working at the  Marietta Sidewalk Survey, Humane Society, Ely Chapman, Friends of Lower Muskingum, Alternative High School, Habitat for Humanity, Buckeye Park, Community Gardens, EVE Women’s Shelter, and Kroger Wetlands from 9 AM to Noon.

Up ‘Til Dawn Finale
Fraternity and Sorority members are encouraged to attend
the Up ‘Til Dawn Finale event, supporting St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.  I know that there will be a DJ there, and will assume that there will be inflatables and other fun things to do there.  The event is open to the college community, and is $5 for those that did not participate in the Up ‘Til Dawn letter-writing campaign .

Sunday, March 29th

Arguably the biggest event of Greek Week, Lipsync starts at 7 PM in Fenton Court.  A week and a half of stress and practice all comes down to 10-12 minutes on the stage.  The theme this year goes along with decades that VH1 has done “I Love The…” shows for.  Sigma Kappa and Alpha Tau Omega share the 80’s, Lambda Chi Alpha and Chi Omega share the 90’s, and Alpha Xi Delta and Delta Tau Delta share the new millennium.  Each group has selected seven songs from the decade that will be played in some form, and will display at least 5 pop-up factoids throughout their show.

Monday, March 30th

Mascot Challenge
Remember the Greek God/Goddess event from last year?  Well, it’s back.  This time, though, its been revamped.  The six campus greek letter organizations will dress up a candidate like the school’s mascot, the Pioneer, and give him phrases and poses to say and do.  The mascots will then be rated by students heading to dinner, as the event takes place out from of Gilman.

Tuesday, March 31st

Gilman Theme Night
A change from last year (I think), all Greeks will be wearing letters and having dinner at Gilman from 5-7 PM.  Really not much more to this event.

Wednesday, April 1st

Blood Drive
It’s time to hold out your arm and give ’til you stop bleeding.  Greek Council is teaming up with the American Red Cross from 9 AM to 5 PM to hold a blood drive in the Gathering Place.  They will be taking both regular blood donations and double-red donations.  All blood types are needed.

Cash Cab
The idea here is that one member of each class of each fraternity and sorority will be driven around town and be asked random questions, similar to a current TV show by the same name on the Discovery Channel.  Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors will duke it out to see who is the trivia king.  The event takes place from 6-8 PM in the Gathering Place.

Thursday, April 2nd

Greek Olympics
It’s a battle of the bodies and brains at DU Field from 6-8 PM.  Various events encompassing all sorts of attributes will take place, with points awarded based on performance.  All are welcome to view the spectacle and root for your favorite chapter.

Friday, April 3rd

Greek Awards Banquet
The applications have been turned in and the winners have been decided.  Who will walk away  with the various chapter and individual awards this year?  Only time will tell.  The event will start at 6 PM in the McDonough Auditoriuma and should take an hour.

Greek Ball
After a week of competition, it’s only fair to kick off the shoes and go dancing.  Everybody will move over to the Great Room in Andrews Hall and dance the night away (or, more likely, from 7-10 PM).
