As the new school year begins, it is important that students practice safe habits. One way to ensure safety, on and around campus, is by signing up for campus safety alerts.
“We have around 3,000 students on file, who are getting our emergency warnings and updates.” Said Bob Wright, Chief of campus security. “When we had a fire on campus a few weeks ago, we were able to get word out to students immediately.”
The email alerts and text messages are sent out only when there are significant events that campus security would like students to be aware of, or in cases of major emergencies.
For those who have not signed up for alerts, but would like to, the process is quick and simple. Students need to log into Badger Web, click the personal information tab, and insert there information on the top of the page on the link that says “college emergency alert notification.”
Students can access the campus safety page, for more information, by going to the Snow College main page, clicking on the “offices” link, clicking on public safety, and browsing the public safety page.
There, students will find informational videos, helpful procedure lists, and safety tips. Such tips include: fire safety, gun safety, earthquake safety, and how to handle sexual assault.
If students are curious about any other aspect of safety, including annual crime reports, emergency procedures, and other safety tips, there are plenty of resources available online.
Although Snow College is a generally safe school, students should continue to educate themselves, use common sense, and practice daily safety habits to get the best experience they can this school year.
