A USI distance education student came to campus Wednesday with a gun in holster.

Police were called around 2:50 p.m. about a female on the third floor of the Science Center with a handgun on campus.

A Public Safety officer questioned the woman and when two sheriff’s deputies arrived on scene, she was escorted willfully back to her truck.

Assistant Vice President for Marketing and Communications Kindra Strupp said the woman came to campus to take an exam and was unaware of the policy.

Strupp said when she was informed of the policy she was cooperative.

The woman had a license to carry the weapon, but was unaware they were not allowed on campus, Strupp said.

No arrest was made.
