TIPS TO STAY SAFE
The Wingate University family is comprised of nearly 3,000 students, faculty and academic support staff. Ensuring the safety and well-being of everyone is a responsibility shared by the Office of Campus Safety, Office of Residence Life and the Town of Wingate.
But remember, the most effective component of a safety program is you!
We want you to follow these nine tips to stay safe:
- Stay alert to your surroundings. Keep an eye out for suspicious people.
- Walk with purpose and don’t make lingering eye contact with strangers.
- Trust your gut. If you feel like your safety is threatened, act quickly.
- Travel with a group of friends after dark.
- Never let a stranger into your residence hall.
- Take extra caution when walking or running at night.
- Don’t wear headphones while running or walking outside. If you must listen to music while you work out, head to the gym!
- Do not share residence hall or building access codes.
- Report any behavior you feel may be suspicious.
