All Hail Northeastern

I happened to be poking around the iTunes Music Store last night, trying to find some ring tones to try out — I still haven’t found any — and I happened to stumble across what is known as iTunes U.

I would have had to travel all the way to campus to keep up with NU’s crime. But then I discovered their web site a couple of years ago. I fell out of the habit last year, but I’m back into it.

An NUPD officer saw a man wearing a shirt but no pants outside Stetson West. The officer asked the 18-year-old male student why he wasn’t wearing any pants, and the student told the officer he was wearing underwear. The student lifted up his shirt to show the officer his underwear. He said his reasoning was that he had just watched the movie “Risky Business” and wanted to emulate it. The student went back inside at the officer’s urging.
