Well, the first day of ETU for incoming Freshmen sure was an exciting one!  First there were dorm and roommate assignments.  For many this is not only the first time away from home, but also the first time having a roommate.  I hope everyone is pleased with their new friends.

After some time to get settled and acquainted with each other, the Freshmen headed over to the Raven's Roost for a time-honored tradition we like to call Sweat Lodge.  Sweat Lodge is a social gathering and also a time for Seniors to impart some wisdom to their underclassmen.  

This year's Sweat Lodge, however, took an unfortunate turn for the worse.  Not only was our beloved Roost vandalized with graffiti, but there was an attempted arson.  Several students were questioned under suspicion of starting the fire, however, no charges have been made at this time.  

Additionally, one of our security guards, Tyson August, has gone missing.  It is unclear at this time whether or not he was involved in the fire.

Among all this, students reported other odd things such as a ghost siting and possibly even an attack by some other creature!
