Smartphone application helps students stay safe

By Steve Amrom, Director of Safety and Security

Our security team has a robust system of equipment, programs and processes that keeps the campus safe and helps everyone have peace of mind when they are walking to and from events.

One tool they offer to help students, faculty and staff is a free smartphone application called Rave Guardian. Rave Guardian allows students to quickly contact the Safety and Security Office, police dispatcher or other designated guardians in an emergency. It also provides another way, along with various types of alarms, for campus security to quickly alert the campus community about emergency situations.

Encourage your son or daughter to download this free application onto their phone if they haven’t already: Questions can be directed to Safety and Security at 570-321-4064 or
