Students can’t count on campus security as they never seem to be around when needed, they just can’t be expected to watch over so many students and guarantee everyone’s safety.

If students live on campus, they need to be careful about who that they let in their dorm. Be very weary of strangers or people you just met. Many can seem very nice and sweet but yet have alternative motives. Also be very careful of who follows you into the building. If you are walking alone many will take this chance to follow you into your dorm, so be very aware of your surroundings. Lock your bedroom door even if you are only going into your hallway.

Half of all burglaries happen because a door or windows are left open. So if student in a private home or apartment make sure all the windows are locked down and the front door is always locked. It doesn’t matter if you’re only going to be out a few minutes out or close by. Always lock up.

Muggers, burglars and rapists are always looking for an easy target. You don’t want to be one of them, always try to be in groups at night. If you can’t be with friends going home, you’re probably better off getting a taxi or staying over a friend’s home.

When using ATM machines try to be in a group of friends or trusted people. If student need to use ATMS, try to get their cash early on. The early the better, less chance of getting cornered and get robbed in the dark of night. So it’s best to use ATMS in groups and during the day if possible. Put the debit card and cash away quickly and always is aware of who’s around and student surroundings. Needless to say never give anybody your pin number or write it down where someone can take it.

Everyone is more vulnerable to crime or being abused in some sort or manner, when they’ve been drinking. If student are planning a big night out partying, arrange beforehand a way to get home safely, with friends, or in a taxi. Be careful of whom they accept drinks from, men and women can have their drinks spiked for different reasons. Keep an eye on your drink as much as possible with strangers. The students do not have to be paranoid or anything like that; just use common sense and all should be well.
