  immediately anyone who you see helping others tailgate.
• Do not prop open any residence exterior door; this insures safety of
  all residents.
• When in the residence hall never leave your room unlocked, even while
  taking a shower or making a short trip down the hall.
• Refrain from posting notes on your door informing others that no one is
  in the room.
• Don’t leave valuables, like your wallet, checkbook, or jewelry, in
  open view.
