Campus Patrol now available extended hours
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
UA is expanding one of its safety programs to make your stay here at UA safer and less stressful.

The Campus Patrol program is here to make sure you make it safely to or from your car, residence hall or class. Campus Patrol is now available to all students on campus and in the surrounding neighborhoods from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. – two hours longer than before. Just call 330-972-7263, and we’ll dispatch a police-trained patrol member to escort you to your destination on or near campus for free.

As you know, walking alone at night in any metropolitan area can pose its hazards. We recommend to everyone what you exercise caution when walking in any big city after dark. Use the buddy system — go with a friend. But if your friends have left a party or bar, we’d be happy to make sure you get back to your car or residence hall safely. And we’ll offer amnesty with regard to your sobriety. No questions asked. The important point is that you get home safely.

So put 330-972-7263 in your cell phone and call Campus Patrol when you need to find a safe way home.

For students who live in nearby neighborhoods, UA police officers will come to your house or rental unit and conduct a free security survey to help you identify security measures that night reduce vulnerability to crimes. For example, the officers will:

-- test the adequacy of your locking system;
-- study all entry points and offer suggestions to improve their security; and
-- offer tips about exterior lighting and other tactics to deter would-be criminals.

To arrange for an audit of your residence, call the UAPD at 330-972-5914 (if no answer, please leave a message).

New Web site explains proposed Akron Scholarship Plan

“Citizens to Keep Akron Strong,” a local citizen advocacy group, has launched an informational Web site concerning the history and goals of the Akron Scholarship Plan for the 21st century.

Akron's residents will be asked to consider the Akron Scholarship Plan as Issue 8 on the Nov. 4 ballot. If approved, the city would be allowed to lease its sanitary sewer system to a private operator to fund the Akron Scholarship Plan. The scholarship monies could then be used by qualified Akron resident students at The University of Akron and several local trade and technical schools.

To learn about the Akron Scholarship Plan, which will be on this November's ballot as Issue 8, all members of The University of Akron community are encouraged to go to http://www.akronscholarshipplan.com.

Questions about the implementation of this policy may be directed to zipmail@uakron.edu.
