Secure belongings, offices during the holiday season

Students, faculty and staff members are encouraged to ensure electronics, backpacks, wallets and purses always are stored in locked environments or kept in sight of the owners at all times.  This especially is true as the holidays approach. Don’t leave belongings unattended, even to take a phone call, play a basketball game, make a visit to the restroom or snack machine, or step away from an office. Also, be sure to contact the Division of Public Safety and Security at 763-1131 to report suspicious behavior, especially in office and study areas and near bicycle racks.  If you See Something, Say Something.
