Dzokhar Tsarnaev, the suspected marathon bomber police are pursuing, attended regular school events at the UMass Dartmouth campus where he’s enrolled. According to the Boston Globe, a student also said Tsarnaev was at a party the same night where he appeared “relaxed.”

School officials said they  were able to assertain his whereabouts by tracking his security card swipes:

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had passed an apparently normal day at the school Wednesday, according to a UMass official, working out at the gym, then sleeping in his single-unit room at the Pine Dale Hall dorm that night, while law enforcement officials were frantically scanning photos and video trying to identify him and his brother.

School officials know he was there Wednesday because of card swipes, but it was not clear if he had been there earlier. He was described as good, typical student who played intramural soccer.
