Dear Students,


Since my message to you earlier today (below), we have had three more students transported by ambulance to the hospital with similar overdose symptoms.  Initial indication in all of these cases is that the students took Molly (MDMA) last night.  Some of the students are in serious/critical condition.  Public Safety and Residential Life are conducting well-being checks in some areas, but I’m asking for your immediate assistance in two ways:


First, and most importantly, please check in with your friends immediately to make sure that they are okay.  Do this right now!  Immediately call Public Safety at 860-685-3333 if anyone needs medical attention.


Secondly, Public Safety and Middletown Police are actively investigating these serious incidents.  Please contact the Director of Public Safety if you have any information.  860-685-3333.


Finally, I ask that you keep these students in your thoughts and share my hope that they will fully recover.


I will provide an update when there is more information that I can share with you.  Many thanks for your help.

To the Wesleyan Community:


A Wesleyan sophomore was transported to Middlesex Hospital early this morning and is in critical condition as a result of an apparent overdose. Two other students were transported in less serious condition but with similar symptoms. The parents of these students have been notified.  A full investigation is underway; anyone with information should contact Wesleyan’s Director of Public Safety at 860-685-3333.
