WLU in brief: March 21, 2012

WLUSU ‘investgating’ smell in FNCC
On Monday and Tuesday, students were greeted by an offensive manure-like smell outside of Wilf’s and the Terrace.

As of press time the Wilfrid Laurier University Students’ Union, who owns the building, did not know what was causing the smell, however president and CEO Nick Gibson wrote in an e-mail that they were “in the midst of the investigation.”

According to Gibson, WLUSU suspects that the smell was resulting from the grease traps in the building’s food outlets.
