dead small rodent on campus of MUN near the dorm construction site. I wouldn't bother reporting, but it looked much bigger than a rat. Perhaps it was a vole or shrew?

Not a shrew - they are tiny. A vole is about the size of a gerbil, "bigger than a rat" could be any number of things. What colour was it? What kind of tail?

Alas, we did not notice the tail...
