At 7:12 p.m tonight, a campus-wide power outage darkened Biola for 30 seconds. According to Chief of Campus Safety John Ojeisekhoba Sr., a power pole off of campus caused the outage. No students were harmed as a result of the incident, but it did delay the start of the men’s soccer game.  

Currently, Campus Safety is checking buildings for elevator safety and for correctly operating fire alarms. The fire department is on the scene in communication with the power company, Southern California Edison. 

Campus Safety divided the campus into two zones, with officers in each, to check critical buildings. According to Ojeisekhoba, these buildings have sensitive materials in them or are vital to campus operations. No further details have been shared.
