In all of the excitement of college starting, many people don’t stop to think about safety on college campuses, or don’t want to think about it.
Campus safety is a partnership between you and the Adelphi University Department of Public Safety. Remember if something does not look right, it probably isn’t.
Going away to college is one of the most exciting milestones in a young person’s life. There are new friends, new experiences and, for many, the first real taste of freedom. But there can also be unexpected dangers.
Here are a few practices students can adopt to help keep themselves and their classmates safe:
The Adelphi University Department of Public Safety is partnering with the Garden City Police Department, Adelphi Counseling Center, Residential Life and Housing, Athletics, Health Services and the entire Adelphi community to provide programming on issues including sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, the dangers of alcohol and drugs, active shooter, and pedestrian safety.
The University offers a full schedule of programming and events during the month of September to enhance the safety of our campus. It takes all of us working together to keep Adelphi a safe campus and all are encouraged, students, faculty, and staff to participate in as much programming and events as possible. Theft prevention, active shooter survival, hazing prevention, sexual assault awareness, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, the dangers of alcohol and drugs are issues that many do not like to talk or think about but through awareness we want the Adelphi community to be mindful, not fearful.Working together as a community will ensure a safe environment for everyone at Adelphi University.
