Students caught having sex in classroom

Two people were witnessed engaging in a sexual act in a Lafayette Hall classroom Friday afternoon.

Students reportedly saw the act prior to the 1:10 p.m. class period. It is unclear whether the two people were students.

Junior Jordan Leabman had lecture in the room directly after the incident. She said they were “totally both students.”

“They were having sex right on the front desk,” Leabman said. “And they walked past our entire class shamelessly.”

English professor Rebecca McLaughlin teaches “British Literature” in the classroom at 1:10 p.m., and said she arrived after the perpetrators had already left.

McLaughlin said she didn’t witness the incident, so she didn’t call police services, but she told her students who had witnessed it to alert them. She said it was “disturbing to many.”

“It also ended up being somewhat disruptive to my class because no one really wanted to go into the room afterwards,” McLaughlin said. “Nor [did they want to] approach to the front desk area and two students were scheduled to give presentations.”

McLaughlin said no evidence of the incident remained on or around the front desk, so she proceeded with class as usual.
