Don't Walk Alone

No place is 100% safe, no matter how well-lit or familiar it may seem! The probability of a crime is substantially reduced when you DON'T WALK ALONE. "There is safety in numbers."

Don't Walk Alone Safety Escort Service is a volunteer safety escort service which operates Sunday-Thursday nights, 11 p.m. – 3 a.m. , except during the summer and during University recesses.

Escorts are based in the library lobby of the uptown campus. You can either meet the escorts at their station or call 442-5511 and two escorts, preferably a male and a female, will walk you wherever you need to go on the uptown campus. Don't Walk Alone Safety Escort Service escorts wear green arm bands and carry flashlights.
