Walking alone on a college campus at night can be dangerous for anyone, however women tend to be more at risk. Underage drinking often compounds these dangers. Often times, criminals will prey on or near campus life looking for unsuspecting victims. This can lead to hazardous situations that include robbery, rape, assault and more. There are several simple precautions you can take to help minimize your risk level while on or near campus.
Always walk with a friend and always walk with a purpose, as if you are almost arriving at your destination. This will throw off perpetrators and make them think you are in control of the situation. A pepper spray keychain can help. Make sure your cell phone is always in your hands, giving you easy access to communicate. The less someone can “read” you the better.
If you realize you are too intoxicated for your own comfort, it is in your best interest to have a friend either pick you up or escort you home. You do not want to be seen stumbling around, leaving yourself vulnerable. If you do decide to walk alone it is important to make eye contact with any passer by; letting them know that you have seen them and you can identify them. Try not to wear long necklaces or clothing that is easy to grab or hard to run in. If you can alter your fashion in any way to make yourself less vulnerable you should do so.
