Almost the entire Safety and Security staff will be working this weekend, according to College Proctor and head of the Department of Safety and Security, Robert McEwen. One of the main features of Homecoming weekend is the bonfire tonight. "For this event we increase foot patrols," McEwen said, "most of our staff will be working Friday night."
