Students And Scholarship Recipients Laptop Stolen

A MacBook Pro laptop containing personal information on students and scholarship recipients from “all over the world” was reported stolen on Tuesday, according to campus police reports.

Music Professor Mary Natvig reported her computer stolen on Tuesday sometime between 1:15 and 1:25 p.m. from her unlocked office in the Moore Musical Arts Center.

Further information was not available at press time.

It is unclear whether the information was encrypted, what kind of information, why was personal information stored on a laptop and why would a music professor need to hang around with a laptop full of personal students details and their payments recipients.
