Resources and Guides - Securing Knowledge
Most parents list campus safety as a top concern as students embark on their college careers. Even at rural and self-contained colleges and universities, statistics indicate there is plenty of trouble out there – from petty theft to date rape drugs to instances of violence. The risks are compounded when the school campus is in the middle of a large metropolitan city. Keeping students safe and secure is challenging for institutions and requires vigilance and street smarts from the student. Freshmen should attend the campus safety orientations their schools offer to advise students of nighttime security procedures, foster safety awareness, and encourage safe habits, such as keeping dorm rooms locked and avoiding walking alone late at night. Here are a few tips for staying safe on campus. For more information, visit www.collegeparents.org or www.securityoncampus.org.
