As a WCU Student, I received a Clery Act notification last night, advising of an attempted robbery of a student at knifepoint on campus.

The West Chester University Department of Public Safety received a report of a male student being robbed at knife point by a black male subject in his 30s, thin build, approximately 6 foot 2 inches tall and shaved head. This incident occurred on 4/6/2011 at about 8:05 pm. The victim was approached as he was walking on the property of Schmidt Hall on the north side of the building, The suspect was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark denim jeans at the time of the incident. The suspect displayed a butterfly style knife to the victim and demanded the laptop the victim was carrying. According to the victim the suspect then fled the scene without taking any property....
West Chester HAD a Students For Concealed Carry on Campus chapter at one point... it is defunct now. (

I am now a student at WCU, and plan to be for the next year or more... I'd love to HELP get such a chapter started... but I can't do it alone. To form a SCCC chapter, they require 5 member... and WCU would require us to have slightly more than that to be an official student organization.

Anyone willing to step up and get involved?
