Safety Tip of the Day

Last night, a mass power outage caused the campus to fall into a state of darkness. With this, many people found themselves stuck in elevators and struggling to make their way across a campus that normally has ample light for a variety of night activities. You never know when a power outage can interrupt your daily life, but that is no reason to be unprepared. Everyone should invest in an LED keychain light. LED lights are compact devices which can be used to illuminate your path in a time of unexpected darkness. Having such illumination also sends a message to a potential attacker that you are concerned about your safety and have already taken steps to protect yourself.
