The ULM Police Department received a call about a suspicious person at Masur Hall. ULM Police Officers are currently at Masur Hall and have located the complainant and possible suspicious person. The officers have determined that there is no safety concern at Masur Hall and the reported suspicious person was cooperative and unfounded. This call came about from a student exercising the practice of seeing something and saying something. As always we encourage the ULM community to call the police if they feel concerned. Stay safe and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
For all Warhawks, local police agencies just passed through our campus with lights and sirens activated. Another agency was attempting to detain a suspect. The incident started and ended away from campus. There was no relation to any student, faculty, or staff at ULM.
Let's all thank Arianna Smith for her diligent effort in keeping the ULM campus safe from this beastly bandit opossum. Due to Arianna's quick thinking, she was able to get the ULM Police on scene before this bandit opossum frightened or attacked any students. The brave and courageous officers,Sgt Willis and Cpl Harrell, at ULM were able to wrangle this wild beast onto a door mat and release it back into it's wilderness home on the Bayou!!!
At the request of many students, the ULM Police Department has implemented a system for registering bicycles. The process only takes a few minutes. If you would like to register your bicycle, please contact one of our officers who will assist you. Bicycle registration allows for better results in locating stolen bicycles and returning them to their owners.

Please use caution during the solar eclipse on Monday, August 21st. Looking directly into the sun may cause serious damage to your eyes. Our area of Northeast Louisiana is not in the projected path of the total eclipse. However, if you are planning to watch the partial solar eclipse, please take extra caution to protect your eyes. NASA warns that “The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as ...‘eclipse glasses’ or hand-held solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun; they transmit thousands of times too much sunlight”.
For a full safety report in reference to viewing the partial solar eclipse, please refer to NASA’s Eclipse 2017 report at the below link:
