Monday morning seemed normal until Carlos Aleman found water leaking from the ceiling in the Juanita Harvey Art Gallery in the Fain Fine Arts building. This brought attention to other faculty members to check rooms in the building. The dark room was flooded and leaking from two different spots in the ceiling with one leak even coming from a light fixture. Faculty and students worked together to recover files and other things from the dark room and restored them in former mass communication professor James Gorham’s old office. Fain has also had trouble with leaks in the atrium but leaks have been attended to and are in the process of being fixed.
