Safety & Security Systems

Through various safety and security systems and recommendations, we strive to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the campus community.

  • Blue Light Emergency Telephones

    The College has a number of blue light phones located throughout campus; they have blue lights above them for easy identification. These phones should be used to request assistance, report suspicious activity, crime, or any emergency.

    By pressing the button on the phone the blue light flashes, and users are connected with an officer from the Public Safety Department. The call will identify the phones location if the caller is unable to speak.
