General Safety Tips - Risk Reduction

  • Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Let someone know where you are going. Make sure you have money and a charged cell phone.
  • Go places with a group and be sure everyone leaves together.
  • Never prop open residence hall doors. Don't allow anyone in the residence hall who you don't know.
  • Keep your room doors and windows locked.
  • If you engage in sexual activity, listen carefully and be sure to give and receive affirmative consent. You have the right to say NO to any unwanted sexual contact...NO means NO!
  • An intoxicated/incapacitated person cannot give consent.
