Thanks from Random

On behalf of Random Hall, I would like to express thanks to all the people and groups that have been so supportive over the last week. First and foremost, I’d like to thank the Campus Police officers who responded to the fire. They reacted very quickly and are to be commended for their outstanding effort.

There was also a tremendous outpouring of support and assistance from the whole student body. Almost immediately upon exiting Random, we were offered shelter in the MIT Museum building by a great group of grad students. Senior House and Zeta Psi also offered us a place to stay when we were still unsure whether we would be allowed back in for the night. Once the news broke, we got offers of help from Baker, East Campus, Fenway and MacGregor. We can’t thank all of these groups enough for extending us their help.

Thanks again to the police, and to everyone in the MIT community who has offered us assistance over the past few days. You all have truly made it easier to work through a tragic situation.
