“The first week of move in, that’s crazy. It’s really crazy”
I suspect we will be seeing a lot of crime on or around college campuses this year.

‘Unnerving’: At least 2 burglaries near Boston University’s campus during move-in week
As Boston University students returned to the city and were unpacking during move-in week, campus police sent out an alert notifying them of burglaries that happened on or near campus early Saturday.
BU police say there were two incidents that occurred on Bay State Road between 3 a.m. to 6 a.m.
“It’s a little nerve-racking to hear just because I’m moving into college for the first time and to hear that’s happening on campus is a little like unnerving,” freshman James Wong said.
“Yeah it’s kind of shocking but hopefully it will get better,” another student said.
“I was a little scared especially my first time being here,” Avion Levermore said. “I’m from Atlanta and it’s a little different with crime but I wasn’t really expecting that up here, and it’s just scary.”
“The first week of move in, that’s crazy. It’s really crazy,” she added.
Campus police say in one burglary, a person got in through an open window on the ground level and took property from inside around 4 a.m. In the other incident, police say someone reached through an open window and took property from the residence.
