Personal Safety: Don't walk alone after dark, walk with persons you know and travel in well-lighted, well-traveled areas. You may want to change your route to and from classes and parking lots frequently. Always be aware of your surroundings and those people near you. Report any suspicious persons or activities. Personal Property: Never leave your property unattended, not even for a moment. Lock up your car and your valuables - CDs, book bags, purses, wallets, etc. Never leave items visible inside your car; lock them in the trunk. Remove your detachable faced stereo. Engrave your personal items with your drivers license or other owner-applied number. Keep a written record of valuables, including descriptions and serial numbers. Report missing or stolen property immediately to Campus Safety. Vehicle Security: Park in well-lighted, well-traveled areas. Lock your vehicle and close all windows. Engrave accessories inside your vehicle with your drivers license number. If your vehicle becomes disabled, report it to Campus Safety including the vehicle plate number, make, model and color. If leaving your vehicle on campus for any length of time, call and leave your plate number, make, model, color and time you plan to remove the vehicle from campus. Sexual Assault: The Department of Campus Safety wants you to be safe while on our campuses. Here are some tips on to help you be safe and avoid a sexual assault. Trust your instincts. If you feel uncomfortable about a person or situation, remove yourself from the situation immediately. Be assertive. Enforce your rights without violating the rights of others. Be assertive but not defensive. When you become defensive you become more vulnerable. Don't be predictable; remember that many sexual assaults are planned. If you must walk alone, walk a different route each time so that you don't have a fixed pattern. Don't be afraid to make a scene if you are confronted. Be alert when with acquaintances If you are at a party or other group function, don't leave with a person you don't know well. Remember that alcohol and drugs compromise your ability to make decisions. Avoid secluded places where you put yourself into a vulnerable situation. Be careful when inviting someone to your residence or accepting an invitation to their residence. Set sexual limits and communicate those limits. Beware of partners who disregard your requests. Be Alert When Walking Avoid walking alone at night. Stay in well-lighted areas, away from alleys, bushes, and entryways. Walk confidently, directly, and at a steady pace. Keep your hands free. Avoid overloading yourself with packages and books. Avoid being overly focused on your phone. Dress in clothes and shoes which will not hamper movement. Become familiar with the lighted corridors on the campus. Campus Safety is available for security escorts to vehicles or other campus locations. Call 503-594-6650 for an escort.
