Students in the dorms are being asked to move from the third floor in the coming weeks. After it has been emptied and sanitized, the third floor will become the only peanut-free floor in the dorms. “We want to make sure that those with peanut allergies will be safe on campus,” said Chancellor Pat Shocker-Zanzabar. Peanut products of any kind will not be allowed on the floor. Other students visiting the floor will have to go through a checkpoint, where any peanut products, as well as products that have been processed in plants that also process peanuts, will be confiscated. Those who have recently eaten peanut products will not be admitted.
