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 MySpace. 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.
