In the event of an emergency:
- First, dial 911 to state your emergency and give your exact location.
- Next, dial extension 4333 and give Campus Safety the same information.
On Campus Housing Safety Measures
The vast majority of crimes on campus involve theft of personal property. Almost always, the theft is from an unlocked room or unattended common area. YOU can prevent these “crimes of opportunity.”
- Always lock your door when you leave - even for a short period of time.
- Lock your door before going to sleep.
- Keep your valuables, such as wallets, purses, money and jewelry out of sight.
- Do not leave notes on your door announcing that no one is in.
- Never loan out your keys or ID card.
- Report anyone acting suspiciously in and around residence halls or Greek Houses to Campus Safety or your residence life staff member.
- Report any doors, locks or windows in need of repair to your Residence Life staff member.
- Do not let non residents into halls. Visitors should be let in by the expecting student.
Safety Measures Elsewhere on Campus
- When walking at night, avoid short cuts through deserted areas of campus or other less illuminated areas. The shortest distance is not always the safest.
- Notify friends when you are traveling around campus alone at low traffic hours. Tell them where you are going and when they can expect you to return.
- The “Walk with Me” student escort program is available 24 hours a day if students feel uncomfortable walking from one point on campus to another. Contact Campus Safety at ext. 4333.
- Do not prop residence halls doors.
Securing Your Belongings
- Don’t leave personal objects (wallet, purse, books) unguarded in academic buildings, recreational facilities or residence halls.
- Fasten all security devices. Locks are worthless unless they are used. This includes bicycle locks and locks on car doors.
- Don’t leave keys outside under door mats or in the mailbox. Also, do not attach your keys to your College ID or driver’s license; if lost, these items could fall into the wrong hands.
