Lice in the OEC House? They Were Greatly Exaggerated

JENNIFER JOHNSON, Arts & Entertainment Editor

Earlier this week, an outbreak of lice at the OEC’s house sent the campus rumor mill churning into overdrive. However, there is little cause for alarm among the student body, with all reported cases being treated promptly.

“We are a very close house,” said Timothy Makarewicz’15 of the spread of the lice, “there’s a lot of hugging and cuddling and the like.”

Lice infection, which is actually an infestation of human scalp hair by a parasitic insect called the Pediculus Humanus Capitis, is most prevalent in school-aged children. There are numerous treatments for lice, including many commercially available combs and shampoos.

“We did the whole expensive shampoo thing,” said Makarewicz “and used lice combs. We spent an entire evening ripping apart the OEC, taking apart everything that might be lice infected, and cleansing it.”
