ResLife Confirms Bed Bugs At Vassar!

In an all-campus email sent moments ago, Director of Residential Life Luis Inoa confirmed that bed bugs have in fact made it to Vassar. As we posted two weeks ago, there has been speculation about bed bugs here since the beginning of the semester. When we spoke to a rep for ResLife at the time, the person told us he was "out of the loop" and couldn't give us confirmation.

In his email, Inoa confirms that Vassar has had "one confirmed case of bed bugs on campus." He says that ResLife received two calls about possible bed bugs today, and our anonymous source in ResLife says they've received a lot more.

Inoa explains the process for dealing with bed bugs, which involves contacting the off-campus contractor and going through a six-week treatment process.
