Vandalism has become an increasingly significant issue on campus this semester. Several instances have occurred, including a message spray-painted inside the new pool construction and damage done to a student’s car. The increase has prompted Luther security to look into purchasing and installing cameras.
Six cars were damaged in the Olson parking lot resulting in an estimated $8,400 in damages. Decorah Police responded to a car accident on Luther Campus at approximately 12:15 a.m. on March 9, 2013.
Torrenting is common on many college campuses, yet many students do not understand Luther’s file sharing policy. A common misconception many students share is that there is a ‘three strike’ system, warning students first when they are caught file sharing on the network.
One Luther student spoke about their torrenting and knowledge of Luther’s policy.

Increasing use of a new methamphetamine-making method poses a threat to the Decorah and Luther communities.
The “shake and bake,” or one-pot, method allows meth to be produced in a two-liter soda bottle and similar containers. The small size has resulted in the possibility for mobile “bombs” as the highly unstable process can be carried in something as simple as a backpack or car.
A case of tuberculosis has been confirmed on Luther’s campus.
Thousands of tickets were sold to students and the public for a chance to see Macklemore and Ryan Lewis perform. The concert, scheduled for Tuesday, April 2, may be one of the most popular events ever held at Luther.
2,250 tickets are available for each SAC concert in Regents as well as an additional 250 tickets reserved for the public. As of Wed. February 21st, 2,112 tickets were sold.
