A few things to keep in mind as you prepare for summer

As you move out of either the residence halls or off campus housing and travel back home for the summer, here are some safety tips to keep in mind.

  1. Never leave your personal property unattended, even if you're going to be gone for just a minute. While moving in/out of your apartment/home/residence halls, it is common practice for students to park close to the building and start moving, leaving their cars unlocked and unattended. This is inviting your belongings, including your car, to be stolen.
  2. Always lock your car and your room. Students will commonly leave their door unlocked if they are expecting a visitor or if they are going to be away for just a minute. Many thefts occur when the student is away from their room for just a few minutes.
  3. Never give your keys or your Zip Card to anyone, even your best friend. With your room/house/apartment keys, he or she can enter at will. Anyone who has your Zip Card can enter your residential building or use your meal-plan funds.
  4. Pack inside and load your vehicle right before you plan to leave.
  5. Place valuables left in your car under your seat, in your trunk, or somewhere else out of sight. Leaving your iPhone or Droid on your seat invites someone to break a window from your car and grab it.
  6. On social media sites, understand that revealing your location could tip off others that your house or apartment is unattended.

Keep these tips in mind and you'll be well on your way to having a great start to your summer. Thank you for attending The University of Akron!

The University of Akron's Zipmail is a compilation of University announcements for University students, sent each Friday unless circumstances require otherwise. The deadline for submissions to be considered by the University is 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday.

Zipmail is a University of Akron communication vehicle established for the benefit of The University of Akron to communicate with its students. Items will be accepted for publication only when the University is directly involved in the activity through participation, sponsorship, or partnership with one of its recognized organizations, colleges or departments. The University reserves the right to edit or to refuse to run any submission for any reason. Zipmail is not, nor is it intended to be, a public forum or a limited public forum. Questions about the implementation of this policy may be directed to zipmail@uakron.edu.

Items to be considered for inclusion in Zipmail should be sent through the Zipmail Event Submission Form. Due to the volume of submissions received, items will not run more than one time.

Questions about specific announcements should be made to the contact person/department/organization listed in the announcement.Your event will automatically be forwarded to the University's online calendar. The Zipmail Coordinator can be reached at x2837.
