Resources and Guides - Securing Knowledge
Most parents list safety as a top concern for their children attending college. Rural and self-contained colleges and universities are statistically rather benign places in terms of crime, but there is still plenty of trouble out there — from petty theft to date rape drugs and other instances of violence.
It's a whole different scene, though, if your child is going to school in a large metropolitan city. Keeping students safe and secure is more challenging for the institution and requires a greater degree of vigilance and street smarts from the student.
Colleges typically provide freshmen orientation that includes thorough briefings on everything from nighttime security procedures to keeping dorm rooms locked and avoiding walks home from the library at 1 a.m. Here are a few more tips for students starting their college careers.
