These laws have penalties of imprisonment and/or fines and can result in College disciplinary action. If you receive harassing or obscene phone calls, report it to the residence hall staff immediately. If a message was left in your voicemail, do not delete the message; report it to the residence hall staff and Security Office immediately.

Use of the voicemail system for general solicitation and/or publicity is prohibited. The Dean of Students must approve all student notices sent by voicemail. Tampering with the voicemail system is strictly prohibited and may result in disciplinary action.
