Education and Prevention
Before they spend their first night in a residence hall, students meet with hall directors and resident assistants to review important security information. The hazards of propping open entry doors, opening doors to strangers, and the need to report malfunctioning locks are stressed. Each fall, the director of public safety addresses the resident assistants about security matters. Security phone numbers and local police and fire / ambulance numbers are distributed and posted by each phone. All security procedures are reviewed. All students receive the security brochure. University policies concerning student conduct, standards, and expectations are contained in the student handbook.
