Stranger in the Shower:
On March 31, a stranger was found showering in an unoccupied Saga suite which was, at the time, being used for an Arts and Humanities Capstone exhibition, The Anatomy of a Home. Yale-NUS and UTown Security were called. He was confirmed to be an NUS student. Security said that he might have tailgated a student to enter since gates are closed at night. Students are reminded to be careful of tailgating at night.
