Think “Safety” on Campus

  • Whenever you are walking between classes, or are in the library, shopping, or driving, stay alert and be aware of your surroundings.
  • Walk with confidence; show that you’re aware and in control. Body language is important.
  • Trust your instincts. If something or someone makes you uneasy, leave the area immediately. Call the campus police as soon as possible.
