Safety & Security Responsibilities of Langston University Community
Members of the Langston University community must assume responsibility for their own personal safety and the security of their personal property. The following precautions should be taken:
- Report all suspicious activity to the campus police immediately.
- Never take personal safety for granted.
- Limit your alcohol consumption, and leave social functions that get to loud, to crowded, or where too many people are drinking excessively.
- Remember to call campus police at the first sign of trouble.
- Carry only small amounts of cash.
- Never leave valuables (wallets, purses, books, calculators, etc.) unattended.
- Carry your keys at all times, and do not lend them to anyone.
- Lock-up your bicycles, lock doors, and close windows when leaving your car.
- Always lock the door to your residence hall room, whether or not you are there. Be certain that your door is locked when you go to sleep, and keep windows closed and locked when you are not at home.
- Do not leave valuables in your car, especially if they can be easily noticed.
- Engrave serial numbers or owner-recognized numbers, such as driver’s license number, on items of value.
The enforcement of laws upon the campus of Langston University is tempered with an educational philosophy, which support the mission, goals, and objectives of the Langston University community. The Campus Police facility is located (across from the White House) at the east entrance of Young Hall, room 135.
