Public Safety Update

Due to some recent reports of theft, we would like to remind everyone not to leave property unattended. Here are a few more helpful tips:

Do not leave valuables in your car left in plain view. Keep all belongings with you when traveling around campus or ask a friend to keep an eye on your things temporarily. Close office and lab doors behind you when you leave. Be mindful of your surroundings and avoid using your cell phone at night when walking to your vehicle. If you witness what you believe to be theft or any suspicious behavior, please notify Public Safety immediately using the number provided below.

Our department has rescued several animals that happen to find their way onto our campuses in the past couple years. In our photo is a pup who managed to lock himself in the baseball field area for a long period of time.
