Students unaware of tornado safety instructions

The university is preparing for this tornado season with informative magnets, but many on campus either don't have the magnets or haven't taken the time to read them, some students said.

Director of Housing and Residence Life Craig Allen said resident assistants put tornado safety magnets on every campus refrigerator at the beginning of each semester, but it's up to students to heed their warnings. The magnets define what constitutes a tornado warning versus a tornado watch and lists the best places to seek shelter.

There were mixed emotions about playing No. 6 Boise State for the second year in a row. Quarterback Andy Dalton had only positive comments about the pick.



"(TCU is) in a BCS game, there is nothing to complain about," Dalton said, "We are going out to (Arizona to) make a statement."
