But our Campuses are safe.....right?
A University of Colorado freshman, identified by family members as Michael George Knorps, is hospitalized with a knife wound after being cut outside of the student center this morning, the first day of classes on the Boulder campus.
Knorps, who is from Illinois, was coherent and able to talk after the incident, campus spokesman Bronson Hilliard said. He is undergoing surgery, and his parents have been notified.
â€œWeâ€™re very glad this young man didnâ€™t appear to be seriously injured,â€ Hilliard said.
The victim's aunt, Elaine Knorps, of Naperville, Ill., said his father called and told her husband the news. She then read the story on the Cameraâ€™s Web site and saw her nephewâ€™s picture.
â€œI thought, â€˜That is little Michael,â€™â€ she said.
She called Knorps a quiet, strong kid. She said he was excited to come to CU because his sister went to the university and now lives in Boulder.
