|Immediately report any crime, suspected crime, or suspicious circumstances/persons to campus Police/Security, day or night.|
|Never leave personal property unattended in your classroom. Take your possessions with you. Mark personal property such as books, calculators, cell phones, adaptive equipment, etc., with a secret pin number or some form of identification|
|Parking your car. Always lock your car. Do not leave CD’s, personal information, or valuables in plain sight. Lock them in a trunk or keep them out of view.|
|Be careful when leaving away messages online and when using the “check-in” feature on Facebook or Foursquare. Leaving information about your whereabouts reveals details that are accessible to everyone. Use common sense so that someone can’t track your every move. If you wouldn’t give the information to a stranger, then don’t put it on your online profile.|
|Do not let your guard down even when people earn your trust. A college campus can foster a false sense of security. Don’t assume people you’ve just met will look out for your best interests; remember that they are essentially strangers|
|Trust your instincts and be yourself. If you feel unsafe, or even uncomfortable, in any situation, go with your gut. Don’t worry about what others think; your own safety comes first.|
|Use your cell phone as a tool. Make sure it’s fully charged before you leave home or school. If you find yourself in an uncomfortable situation, shoot a quick text for a “friend-assist.” Make a plan before you go out just in case your phone dies, so you can meet up with your friends at a specific location at a certain time.|
|If you see something, say something! Intervene if a situation seems questionable or if someone’s safety is at risk. By taking action you can prevent a crime from being committed. Remember to always contact campus police.|
|Stick with your friends, and watch out for each other. Arrive together, check in with one another throughout the time you are on campus, and leave together. Think twice about going off alone and if, for whatever reason, you have to separate from your friends, let them know where you are going and who you are with.|
|Be aware of your surroundings. Whether you’re walking home from school or at a party be mindful of potential risks. Get to know your campus and learn a well-lit route back to your vehicle. Think of a safe exit strategy. Are there people around who might be able to help you? Is there an emergency phone nearby?|
