BE CAUTIOUS FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY
Whether you are on campus or anywhere else, it is good practice to always be aware of your surroundings and alert. While many areas are well lit and have security measures in place to keep you safe, there is no replacement for your own awareness. Below, you will find some tips to help keep you protected:
- Lock your vehicle doors, even when you are sitting in the car
- Keep the windows on your vehicle rolled up
- Do NOT keep any valuables out in plain sight
- Avoid walking alone to your car at night
- Avoid dark or deserted areas
- If you feel threatened or notice anything suspicious, immediately notify campus security or call 911
- Keep your belongings with you and do not leave them unattended
- Do not bring valuables or cash on campus (only bring what cash is necessary)
- Listen to your gut (if you are not comfortable, get out of the situation right away)
- When listening to music, leave one earbud out to hear what is going on around you
- NEVER walk alone with someone you do not know
- Only carry what you can comfortably handle and do not overburden yourself
- Walk with a purpose and confidence (if you look confused, you may become a target)
- ALWAYS be aware of your surroundings
- Know where to go to get help and have your phone on you and charged
