Aggressive Seagulls on East Campus

We are experiencing aggressive seagull activity between the Library and Admin. We believe the chicks are starting to hatch, so the parents are becoming hyper protective. Pedestrians in this area should be aware and avoid the pathway through the trees next to the intersection of Science Circle and Alumni Drive.
