There is a Gun man on Yale University Old Campus right now and I’m here … Stuck

Yes the title is true I have been stuck here with the campus lock down for about an hour now. this was so unexpected. I woke up this morning, one of my many  mornings coming to visit my now ill  grandmother Fay Joyner a former Yale employee, to come to the doctors to get blood drawn. She was done in 5 minutes, a simple in and out appointment so I thought. I thought incorrectly only moments after we got in they announced “there is a gun man on campus this is not a test take shelter” and by take shelter they really mean lock down.  I cannot think of any reason in the world a Yale student would go crazy. Yale students lead a perfect life I desire to be one of them, they are all so well groomed, polished, smart, and on every woman’s wish list for the perfect spouse. I may reconsider my requirements for my spouse now. I’m looking around it could be anyone they have no idea who the gunman is. How long is this going to keep up?

Last week was the first Wildcat Wednesday here at the Charlotte campus. To our surprise, the number of student participants was not what we had expected. A few students showed up to class in jeans, but most were dressed in the JWU norm. Even fewer students had Johnson & Wales t-shirts on. When asked about the new policy…
