Safety & Security Tips

All students, faculty, staff and visitors should take an active role in their own safety and security while on College property. You can help maintain a safe environment for everyone at the College by following these guidelines:

  • Be aware of and know your surroundings at all times.

  • Walk in well lighted and well traveled areas after dark.

  • Try not to walk alone, walk with a friend or in groups.

  • Immediately report all suspicious persons, vehicles or activities.

  • Immediately report all crimes, security problems or hazardous conditions.

  • Keep yourself informed. Check e-mail, bulletin boards, etc. for “College Safety Alert” notices that pertain to specific security conditions at the college. Take advantage of informational programs.

  • Never prop open any locked exterior doors or leave ground floor windows open.

  • Never study alone in an isolated area of a college building.

  • Lock your car and secure valuables when using parking facilities. Keep your car locked with your windows rolled up. Remember where you parked and walk confidently to your vehicle.

  • Know the “Student Code of Conduct.” Abide by it and encourage others to do so.

  • Know the emergency exits and locations of fire alarm pull stations and extinguishers in your building.

  • Lock offices whenever you are not present.

  • Keep office and building keys with you and never loan them to unauthorized persons.

  • Never abandon your belongings (i.e. purses, book bags, cell phones, keys, etc.). It is common for people to walk away and leave their belongings unattended. Take them with you.

  • Do not bring excessively valuable belongings to campus. Avoid the showing of valuables. If you value something, chances are someone else will too.

  • Keep valuables out of sight. Do not leave cell phones, computers, or other items visible in your vehicle. Lock valuable in your trunk.

  • Record serial numbers. Make it a habit to record serial numbers of your belongings. Engrave items.
