Stay Safe at College

For many students, the college campus environment will be the first experience "on their own"—away from parents, familiar environments, and for many even their lifelong friends. Equipped with knowledge and good self-defense strategies, a student can avoid becoming prey to theft and other crimes. A good campus experience means knowing how to stay safe and how to protect possessions, identity, and self.

The Stay Safe at College program from 360° Stay Safe™ delivers all the resources needed to be safe, stay safe, and, if needed, always be prepared for self defense.
