The entire UCLA community was invited to participate in a post- event survey and to contribute any thoughts or suggestions that were included in the campus report about June 1. One of the contributions that resonated with many of us is the following: I am lucky enough to have a very safe office with a locked door and no windows (3rd floor of YRL). Several colleagues were in the office with me, and we were monitoring the news feeds online. We knew that we were to stay in place one of our admin assistants called to let us know what was going on. There were rumors about a shooter in our building. At one point, a colleague went to the restroom—she found three students hiding there—shoving backpacks against the bathroom door, scared out of their wits. We took them into my office and waited until we received an “all clear” message from staff on the first floor.
