• Stay alert and attuned to people and circumstances around you.
• Send the message that you’re calm, confident, and know where
  you’re going, even if you don’t.
• Trust your instincts. If something or someone makes you uneasy,
  avoid the person or leave.
• On and off campus, know where the emergency phones are located.
• Know your neighborhood and campus; find out which buildings are open
  late (or early) and where you go to summon help if needed.
• Choose an ATM that is located inside a building or other well-lit locations.
   Never count cash at the machine or in public. Wait until you are in a
   secure place.
• Obtain a whistle from the Campus Safety & Security Department and carry
   it with you at all times. Use your whistle to draw attention.

• Take the shuttle or call for an escort.

Use lighted walkways at night.  Criminals do not like lights!  Avoid dark
   streets or secluded paths.

If someone seems to be following you, turn in the opposite direction or
  cross the street.  If he/she persists, move quickly to the nearest open
  business or group of people and ask for help.

Avoid using cell phones, iPods, or MP3 players while walking.  Suspects
   target cell phones and other items in plain view.
