PSA: Creepy Clowns Have Officially Come to Orono

All across the country there have been reports of people walking around colleges in disturbing clown costumes over the past week or so. Merrimack College, University of Rhode Island, and Quinnipiac University are just some of the schools that have been put on lockdown over the past few days after it was reported that the clowns were armed.

As of Monday night, clowns had invaded UMaine and everyone is losing it. While some of the campus seems ready to fight off the clowns, others are posting up in their bedrooms with their closest friends in the hopes of keeping each other safe. Either way, everyone seems to agree that these clowns are not funny.

None of the clowns around Orono have made any attempts toward being violent however the Orono Police Department has been keeping a close eye on them. All of the men around UMaine seem to think that they can form a clown hunting party to keep us safe. And while that is all fine and good, I think it would be good for us to keep Jamaica Ford’s wise words in mind:

Stay safe UMaine! Hopefully this clown craze will pass before Halloween!
