Safety Tips

  • "The Buddy-System" - whenever possible, travel with a friend. However, there are times when one can not avoid being alone, therefore take the following precautions: 
    1. Avoid isolated places - ex. an empty lot.
    2. Stay in well lighted areas.
    3. Have keys in hand when approaching your vehicle.
    4. Try to park under lights.
    5. When using elevators, if you are weary of the individual(s) riding it, do not hesitate to get out.
    6. Avoid using isolated stairwells.
    • If one can not travel with others, the Public Safety Department will provide an escort anywhere on campus.

    Incidents on campus can be significantly reduced if each person will take the time to: 

    1. Properly secure personal and University property.
    2. Remain attentive to all personal belongings in order to prevent theft.
    3. Do not leave items unattended while using the restroom, in the library, in the cafeterias, or during class.
    4. Keep purses and book bags closed.
    5. Do not leave items in plain sight in your car - ex. spare change, books, sunglasses, etc.
    6. Lock rooms when leaving.
    • Emergency phones are located throughout the entire campus - the desk officer will receive a signal of the location and dispatch an officer to that site immediately.
