Campus Safety Tips

This safety guide is printed to remind all members of our campus to travel safely, to familiarize themselves with call box locations, identify well-lit areas at night, and use common walkways after dark.

  • Plan your route in advance and tell someone where you are going and when to expect you.
  • NEVER walk alone at night; walk in groups. Avoid isolated areas after dark.
  • Park in a well-lit place if you will return to your car after dark. Approach your car with your keys ready. Look inside and around your car before getting in, then lock your door immediately.
  • Remember, the legal drinking age is 21. If you are 21 or older and drink, do it responsibly. Do not drink and drive.
  • Never leave your drink unattended or accept drinks from strangers.
  • If approached by a robber, do not resist—especially if the robber is armed. Get a good description of the person.
  • Program emergency telephone numbers in your cell phone on speed dial.
  • Do not walk on railroad tracks, drive around crossing arms, or climb on or underneath trains.

Protecting your personal property

  • Property in your car should not be left in plain view.
  • Don't carry large sums of money and/or several credit cards.
  • Copy the front and back of credit cards and all important information in your wallet or purse and put it in a safe place.
  • Do not leave personal property unattended at any time.
  • Lock your residence hall room at all times.
  • Engrave your name on property.
  • Get your books stamped with the Protect-A-Book seal at University Police Department or the Office of Student Government & Student Organizations.
  • Register personal property with the University Police Department online at http://webapps.csg.sc.edu/lespips.
