As Appalachian State University starts the fall semester, it is a good time to remember the following safety tips:
- Be aware of your surroundings. If you see something that looks suspicious, call the police. We don’t ever mind coming and finding out that it’s not suspicious.
- If you’re out walking at night, carry a cell phone so that you can call if something happens.
- Always try to walk with a friend when out after dark.
- Always try to walk in well-lit areas and avoid secluded spots.
- Always lock you doors.
