Safety Tips

  • Make note of Emergency Phone locations in parking lots and buildings.
  • Know your tornado shelters and fire exit locations for each classroom.
  • Upon a fire evacuation, move far away from the building to make room for first responders.
  • When walking, pay attention to people and traffic.
  • Smartphone use while walking causes trips, falls and walks into walls.
  • Don’t leave your belongings unattended! Use the hooks in the restroom stalls to hang your items out of reach.
  • Utilize Campus Security for escorts to your car or buildings, or walk with a buddy.
