Power outages frequent Quinnipiac residence halls this week

By Bill Ruocco

Late Monday night, residents at Quinnipiac University’s Mount Carmel campus experienced power outages that lasted into Tuesday afternoon.

Students first received an email at 11:27 p.m. on Monday with an update regarding the power outages.

As the severity escalated, students in both the Hill and Village resident halls were instructed to evacuate for the night in the event that the power was not returned to them by morning.

Today just before noon, students received an update on a possible solution.

At approximately 2:40 p.m on Tuesday students received another email that, in summation, stated that the problem was not yet dealt with.
