Possessing common sense and listening to your gut are going to be the biggest things that keep you safe on campus. Knowing to keep your dorm room locked when you’re not around and to protect your electronics with a password can help prevent theft and identity theft. Knowing to walk in a group and not to walk home under the influence can prevent any number of crimes. That said, accidents and emergencies do occur, and in those cases, campus police or emergency services will need to be called and you will need to know what to do until they arrive. Know when to evacuate and when to stay put, and subscribe to the emergency notification emails and texts at your college.
