Campus Safety would like to take this opportunity to encourage the whole campus community to take an active role in your safety and the safety of the community by:

 

  • Making sure that any monetary transactions are conducted with discretion; attempt to avoid displaying any amount of currency while making financial transactions in public places.
  • Always being aware of your surroundings while walking. Be careful not to allow music and other communication devices from drawing too much of your attention.
  • Travelling in well-lit areas. Utilize the Rave Guardian app or walk in groups for safety.
