Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • Drug lab found in GU dorm Saturday morning.
  • GM heard a rumor that the building’s fire alarm system didn’t work and campus police had to go door to door waking students up and telling them to get out. If true, that sounds like something the university ought to follow up on.
