Trust your instincts and be yourself. If you feel unsafe, or even uncomfortable, in any situation, go with your gut. Don't worry about what others think; your own safety comes first.
If you see something, say something. Intervene if a situation seems questionable or if someone's safety is at risk. By taking action you can prevent a crime from being committed. Remember you can also contact campus public safety.
Wait to let your guard down until people earn your trust. A college campus can foster a false sense of security. Don't assume people you've just met will look out for your best interests; remember that they are essentially strangers.
Be aware of your surroundings. Whether you're walking home from the library or at a party be mindful of potential risks. Get to know your campus and learn a well-lit route back to your dorm or place of residence. Think of a safe exit strategy. Are there people around who might be able to help you? Is there an emergency phone nearby?
If you observe any suspicious activity on or around campus please report it to Campus Public Safety immediately at 565-4611 or by picking up a "Red" phone, or once you arein a safe location. At the UC Hastings Garage there are assistance stations that can be used to contact Campus Public Safety as well. For emergency or in-progress incidents, dial 9-1-1 and/or report it to the Public Safety Department.
This alert is a public service to the University community and in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Act of 1998.
