Encourage Your Student to Explore Campus Career ServicesTami Campbell
Rest assured that colleges and universities make student safety a top priority. The campus police department works closely with the town/city police department — security officers are available 24 hours a day to respond to student concerns. The entrances to residence halls can only be opened by the students who live there, using their ID cards as a key. Pathways and public spaces are well lit.
It is a good idea to talk to your student about things they can do to protect their personal safety as well as their belongings.
