Is it safe to walk on campus at night?

Yes, provided you take some simple steps to enhance your safety. First be alert to suspicious people or circumstances. If something or someone doesn't seem right to you, go to a well-lit, populated area and notify the police. Travel in well-lit, well-traveled areas and try not to walk alone. Familiarize yourself with the locations of the courtesy phones around campus. If you ever have a problem, go to one of these and dial 9-911. Also remember that most crimes that happen on campus occur from around 1 a.m. - 3 a.m. and involve alcohol.
