Tips for Parents
personal safety tips for students
Walking — Don't walk alone, especially after dark. Call the campus escort service or use the buddy system. Stay on populated, well-lit paths.
The Element of Surprise — Make it tough for someone to take you by surprise — don't wear headphones when walking, jogging or studying alone.
Obscene Calls — Don't engage an unknown caller in conversation or give away any personal details. Keep track of when calls are made and what is said. Save voicemail messages, too. Turn everything over to staff members who can help.
Stalkers — If someone is stalking you, report it to public safety immediately. A restraining order or some other action may be taken to keep you safe.
Being Followed — Head toward crowds, lights or buildings if someone is following you.
