Street Safety

  • Stay alert
  • Stay in well-lit areas.  Walk mid-point between curbs and buildings, try to keep from using alleys or less- traveled routes between buildings, and avoid bushes
  • Stay near people and avoid taking shortcuts alone through vacant lots and other deserted places
  • Carry only necessary cards and money.  Wear your purse strap on your shoulder, not looped around your neck and shoulder
  • Don’t stop to provide strangers with directions or information, especially at night
  • Walk with someone else whenever possible and set up a buddy system with your friends
  • Don’t jog alone late at night, or walk on trails alone
  • Use the Safe Walk program to escort you to or from your vehicle
  • Know the location of the Security Emergency phones around the areas of campus that you travel
