    The windows at those dorms (Moore, Holhouser) have no screens or safety features. I visited a relative in the dorm and his bed was next to the screenless window (how the bed was situated originally). I could see how someone could accidentally fall.

      Its the same here in Sanford. The window has no screen, and It is so hot that it is unbearable to leave the window closed. We complained about the heat, but the bark of a few cannot bite that of the many.

      No it’s not. It happened when I was a freshman back in ’96. That time the girl was lucky and only fell from the second floor. I wish they would change all the high rise windows. They’re dangerous.
