Reminder to keep personal property secure
As we approach the end of the semester, more and more time is
spent studying on campus. Students are reminded to stay safe
and keep their personal property secure. Thefts are common this
time of year. Our campus is open, and thieves know that
students are spending long hours in the library, often walking
away from their laptops, backpacks, and purses "just for a
minute." Also students who seek isolation while studying may put
themselves at risk if no one knows where they are. So the library
staff reminds students: keep an eye on your stuff, and keep an
eye on each other. And if you are leaving campus late at night,
please call SNAP at 392-SNAP(7627) for an escort.
