I’d like to provide you with some tips from Marcia Peot, full-time police officer and Chief Safety Officer at StreetSafe on how to stay safe on college campuses.

  • Let friends or roommates know where you are going, who you are with and when to expect you home.
  • Never leave outside doors propped open, and don’t let strangers into secured buildings or residence halls.
  • Never accept a ride from someone you don’t know, even if they are or claim to be a fellow student.
  • When approaching your car or residence, have your keys in your hand and check the area for suspicious individuals or activity.
  • When walking by yourself, keep your expensive belongings such as laptops and cell phones hidden.  You will be less of a target.
  • When dressing for cold weather, make sure your vision and hearing are not obstructed by hats and scarves.
  • Consider taking extra measures to protect yourself.
