“Hoverboards” pre-banned

ULM Hawkeye

An email message sent out last Thursday informed students that “hoverboards” and all other similar self-balancing electric devices have been immediately banned from campus.

The email states that, “no electronic skateboard devices will be permitted for use, charging, possession or storage on University grounds or inside buildings, including residence halls, suites and campus apartments.”

There have been several reports of fires being started by charging “hoverboards.” These reports are many and widespread.
