(Nabbing bags of chips)
Nolen (to himself): I think if I make a second trip, I can grab all of the-oh my recorder turned on. Uh.
He puts stuff down and collects himself.

Nolen: I am back in Rm 132 where Raider Red’s Snack Spot is located. Apparently, this food pantry has something called a Research Hub attached to it. I recall having one of these in my alma mater. I used it myself since it was an affirming place to get research help. In retrospect, the lack of snacks was certainly a missed opportunity.

Anyway, I also got myself a few brochures from a place called the Undergraduate Writing Center, a place for students to get feedback for their essays and writing projects. They were found in this location, so it is safe to assume this is their room when they visited on Sundays from 2-7 p.m. Oh, I’m sorry, “their” room when they visited.
(He softly chuckles)

That was just a little joke for those listening.

But I think that’s it. I think I explored every nook and cranny of this building.

Nolen: Sir, there is no need to jump into any sort of action. Why don’t we stop and talk this out. And maybe we cannnnn…
(A sound of Nolen running away crashing into chairs and tables along the way.)
Employee: Wait! Stop! Jeeeez…
Well at least he is out of the building. Argh he left chips everywhere.
Psycho…and oh great, he left his phone here. He left his recorder on.

Recorder turns off.
