Imagine that for Christmas you finally got that hoverboard you've been dreaming about since you first saw Marty McFly speed through town on Back to the Future II. Sure, it doesn't really "hover," but it's the next best thing. Then, you bring it back to campus only to find that they've been banned!! That has happened to many students at WSU. The new hot item has been banned from campus!

The ban is in response to several instances where the batters have burst into flames. Yes, BURST INTO FLAMES!! THe ban was announced on Thursday, and bans even possession and even storage of the devices in in university apartments, academic buildings, residence halls, research buildings and recreational facilities. Sorry, Cougs, you're just going to have to walk or ride bikes like the rest of us!
