A public safety week at USciences aims to raise student awareness regarding personal safety. From Monday, Nov. 28 through Friday, Dec. 4, a number of events, contests, and activities look to reinforce the theme “We’ve Got Your Back: Staying Safe and Secure at USciences On- and Off-Campus.”
“Our goal is to raise student awareness about their personal safety,” said Shawn Woods, Director of Public Safety. “We want students to take a more active role in their own well being and provide them with educational material to make good choices. For example, don’t leave your belongings unattended.”
To kick off the week, Mike Dilbeck, founder of the RESPONSE ABILITY Project, will be speaking in AstraZeneca Auditorium in the McNeil STC at 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 28. Dilbeck, who recorded a personal greeting to the USciences community at http://youtu.be/GlZldMUiEko, brings his message of being an everyday hero. His theme has taken on an even greater meaning given the recent situation at Penn State.
Other activities include:
Tuesday, Nov. 29, 6-8 p.m.: Woman’s Self Defense Interactive Demonstration in the ARC Classroom. Refreshments to follow.
Wednesday, Nov. 30, 5p.m.: How are your Beer Goggles? Drinking and Driving simulation in the ARC Lobby
