Staying Safe on College Campuses: Here’s How with these Community Awareness Ideas

Do you remember your college day? So fun!

New friends. Challenging chapter of life. Hanging out after class. Late-night studies. And other late-night ‘stuff’.

We also thought we were indestructible. Really untouchable. Fear for our lives never entered our thought process.

That is certainly not the case in today’s society and on today’s college campuses. Yes, there are still life-long friendships being fostered and classroom lectures that prepare us for the rest of our lives. But there is a certain sense of fear clouding campuses today.

How do you prepare? How do you stay as safe as possible? What are some great Community Awareness Ideas?

Here are 5 good ways.

  1. Be aware of your surroundings. Know your campus. Study aerial maps. Take tours doing the day. Really know about as many buildings as you can. After you know your surroundings, stay aware of them. Keep music down on devices. Look around, a lot. Stay alert. Be aware of everybody around you; front & back.
  2. Walk in pairs or more. This goes for both male and female. Especially at night. If by yourself, ask campus security or police to walk you home.
  3. Trust your soul and follow your heart. If it feels strangely odd or just not right, avert the situation. Go another way. Turn around. Trust your feeling. It’s ok.
  4. Watch your drink. Again, guys or gals. Watch your drink being made. Hold it in your hands always. If you drink, do so in moderation. Never take your eye off your drink. So folks may try to slip something in your drink. But if you are cognizant of your situation and stay vigilant, the likelihood is low.
  5. DOWNLOAD the Heads Up! Community app. If there was a situation or emergency on campus, you would be notified via your phone. As would campus security, college administration and even parents. It is a great tool for receiving information about stuff you want/need to know about.
