Campus Safety Tips
We have one of the most beautiful campuses in America. Louisburg College is a very safe campus with property theft as one of our most reported crimes. Here are some steps to help you stay safe on campus or anywhere you are.
- Use a u-lock style bike lock looped through the front tire and around your frame.
- Be aware of your surroundings and report any suspicious activity to Campus Safety.
- Register your bike through the Office of Campus Safety.
- Never leave your valuables out in the open instead, place them in a secure area to avoid crimes of opportunity.
- Register your electronic devices through the college’s Operation I.D. database.
- Always use the buddy system.
- Be an effective bystander. Do not ignore situations that seem problematic or indicate that someone is trying to take advantage of a vulnerable person.
- When walking, get your head out of your phone and be aware of your surroundings.
- Walk with a partner in well-lit areas at night.
- Close and lock your doors and windows especially ground level windows of the residence hall room, while you are asleep to help prevent burglaries and assaults.
- Avoid social events where illegal alcohol and controlled substances are present.
- All residence hall students should be conscientious about any strangers trying to enter buildings without an escort or "tailgating," entering residence halls with a group of students.
- Doors leading to living areas in residence halls remain locked 24 hours a day, and a hall resident must escort visitors in and out. Do not prop open doors or leave rooms unlocked.
