Staying Safe on Campus

Lorain County Community College, like any other college campus, has its share of mishaps, crimes and injuries.  The right attitude and actions, though, can help protect:

  • you
  • your belongings
  • fellow students
  • our campus

DON'T GET CAUGHT ALONE
Go with someone-there's strength in numbers!  Or call Campus Security from a regular classroom phone at extension 4053 or via cell phone at 366.4053 to request an escort.  Avoid isolated or dark areas and report any unsafe conditions to Campus Security immediately!

PROTECT YOUR VALUABLES
Do not leave book bags, textbooks or purses unattended.  Take your belongings with you everywhere you go.  Engrave/write your name or student ID number on your personal property (i.e. calculators, textbooks, laptops, book bags, etc.).  Visit the LCCC bookstore to inquire about locker rentals.

DRESS SENSIBLY
Dress in attire that you can easily move in.  Tight clothing and high heel shoes or clogs may make movement difficult. 

IN THE PARKING LOT
Walk to your car with a purpose, car keys in hand, ready to put in the lock.  Check underneath your car and in the back seat before you enter.  Make every attempt to park in well-lit areas.  Once inside, keep your car doors locked. 

PROTECTING YOUR CAR
Always lock your car doors, roll up your windows and close your sunroof.  Always lock valuables in your trunk or in your glove compartment.  Never leave any valuables in plain sight in your vehicle.  Always scour your vehicle upon returning from class to assure you are not the victim of a hit-and-run accident. 

CALL CAMPUS SECURITY
If you see something dangerous or someone suspicious, make note of it and call campus security immediately (366.4053 or 366.4444 from a cellular phone) or extension 4053 or 4444 from a classroom phone.  Furnish all pertinent information to Campus Security and try to be as detailed and accurate as possible (e.g. nature of the emergency, location, suspect(s) description(s), type of vehicle, license plate numbers, time of day).  Always be vigilant and make every attempt to be aware of your surroundings.  When in doubt, call Campus Security
