Are You Safe?
Whether you have moved away for school or continue to live at home, it is important to keep certain tips in mind to prevent a sexual assault at your university or college.
- Create a Secure Environment in Residence. If you are living in residence, be sure to lock your doors and windows when leaving your room. It seems like an obvious thing to do but the familiarity and comfort of residence life can cloud good judgement when it comes to safety. Be wary of who you let enter your residence house or floor.
- Be Cautious When on Campus at Night. Keep the number for campus safety in your wallet or purse and find out if your school offers a safe escort service to walk around campus at night. If you know that you need to be out late at night, try to go with someone or at least let a friend know where you are and how to reach you.
