Student flees from potential violence

December 5, 2008

I don't think the column’s author of "Students ridiculed for weekend departure" thought up this response: What about avoiding violence on campus?

In the same paper, I read about how some one got arrested for battery and possession of brass knuckles. That just makes me want to stay on campus with the pending threat of being beaten to death by brass knuckles.

I would much rather go back to my lovely home town of Woodbury or to my uber safe apartment in Minneapolis than stay on campus with something that scary around the bend.

Needless to say, outside of that little scary, if not thrilling, part of River Falls, for those of us who weren't so lucky as to find our BFFs at college, River Falls might as well be a dead, zero fun zone.
