    He had blue eyes, and "buzzed" blond hair. He had wrinkles on his forehead, according to police.

    He was wearing a dark gray sweater and dark gray pants.

    Students were alarmed.

    All you want to do is take a clean shower and maybe go to be or go to class," said student Hira Ashir. "That's your sacred place and that's the place where you kind of relax."

    Kaylie Edger was surprised that someone was able to get in knowing students need their own keycards.

    Parent Scott Liegler said he wasn't too concerned.

    "They've got all kinds of security around campus to take care of things," he said.
