As in all large communities, crime is a potential threat to any member of the college community. To help reduce their vulnerability to crime, people should consistently practice personal preventative measures.
Be aware that you are a potential victim of crime.
Immediately notify the Campus Police of any person or activity that arouses your suspicions.
After dark, walk with others.
Avoid isolated areas (both indoors and outdoors).
Use well lighted paths
Have alternate means of transportation available.
Do not allow strangers into cars.
Don't leave property unprotected.
In your motor vehicle, store valuables out of sight.
Do not leave personal property unattended in libraries, dining halls, academic buildings, offices, etc.
Record the make, serial number and model of all valuables and engrave them with your drivers' license number. This will increase the chance that any items recovered can be returned to you.
Avoid the use of alcohol and other drugs. Persons under the influence are much more likely to be the victim of a serious crime or accident.
