General Safety Tips

  • Be aware of your surroundings, including people, visualize potential exit routes from an event or location in case of emergencies.  Be familiar with safe and direct routes to campus destinations.
  • Try not to walk alone after dark. If you do, try to utilize well-lit and populated routes on campus.
  • Keep emergency numbers in cell phone or by your landline phone, including that of campus safety, and health services.
  • Trust your instincts, especially when you feel that something is "not right."
  • Be aware of what you post on the internet, especially online social networks like Facebook and Twitter. You can never be sure of who is viewing your personal information or pictures - stalkers, employers, recruiters, or family.
  • Do not prop open campus building doors, especially residential buildings. Remove props and report the problem to an RA or campus safety. 
  • Do not accept drinks from strangers as they could be easily contaminated with a drug.
  • Try to avoid being alone in areas of campus that can often be empty or isolated such as basement laundry rooms, study lounges, etc.
  • If you notice another person in danger, follow your school's safety and security procedures and call 911. Do not engage another person who has a weapon or involve yourself in a fight.
