Students may have been joking about drowning in yesterday’s downpour, but some creatures weren’t so lucky. Students reported seeing a drowned squirrel on a staircase near Morton Hall.

Although it’s all washed away now, the Office of Student Activities is concerned about sidewalk chalking. Assistant Director of Student Activities Trici Fredrick M.Ed. ’05 included a reminder in yesterday’s Student Happenings. “Please remember that using chalk on sidewalks, walkways or anywhere across campus to advertise is against College policy and not allowed in any form,” she warned.

Students looking to wile away the rainy hours may have noticed the College featured in a new Sporcle quiz, “Name that Basketball Conference.” Spoiler alert: the Tribe is in the Colonial Athletic Association.

Speaking of CAA basketball, the Tribe’s season opens tonight at 7:30 with an away game against 12th-ranked UConn.

The Tribal Fever began selling student packages for Nov. 21’s Richmond game Wednesday. You get a game ticket and a bus seat for $10 — a steal, considering the tickets alone cost $26. A few were still available as of yesterday.

Looking for something a little more free? The Tribal Fever is handing out 6,000 rally towels at tomorrow’s New Hampshire game — the last home game of the season.

Robert Bauman, Busch Gardens’ original burgermeister, has died at the age of 95. As burgermeister, he performed at the theme park’s German restaurant from 1975 to 2002, singing and dancing while wearing traditional lederhosen.
