Safety tips:
Use well-lit walkways and buildings
Use the “buddy system” and walk with someone you trust
Walk near the curb and away from shrubbery where someone could be hiding
Walk against traffic so that cars cannot surprise you from behind
Keep an arm’s length away from strangers
Don’t make it obvious that you’re in unfamiliar territory
Giving the appearance of not paying attention and not being alert is what suspects look for in a victim
Be alert of your surroundings – Know your campus and surrounding area
Walk briskly and with confidence
Emergency Dial 9-1-1 (Police, Fire & Ambulance)
