Hit or Miss

College Must Rebuild After Tornado Strikes. It’s tornado season in Missouri, and William Jewell College was particularly hard hit on Sunday. Most of their dorms were damaged and several had their roofs blown right off — resulting in the rest of their classes and exams being cancelled.

I consider myself pretty lucky that I haven’t had any major emergencies during my tenure as a Hall Director (other than water mains bursting). I don’t know how I’d deal with a real emergency, like when my old residence hall at DePauw caught on fire last year.
