Five things to make your spring break even more awesome

Ready for a few days off? We want you to have a break that is as safe as it is memorable.  Here are five things that will help make that happen:

Spring break 20111. HAVE AN OFFICER CHECK YOUR RENTAL
If you live immediately south or east of campus, UA and Akron police can check your house periodically over spring break. Register by 2 p.m. Friday, March 11. Learn more and register.  (If you have a friend who is not leaving town for break, ask him or her to periodically check your house.)

2. DON'T BROADCAST YOUR WHEREABOUTS
Sure, tweeting from the beach will make your friends jealous, but it could also tip off others that your campus home is unoccupied.

3. SECURE YOUR SPACE HERE BEFORE YOU LEAVE
Lock all doors and windows. Leave a light on or better yet, put a light on a timer so that it appears as if someone is home. Put a hold on the mail

Oh, and don't pack your vehicle the night before. It may take only a minute for a determined thief to break in.

4. PARTY SMART
If you are of age to drink, set a limit and stick to it. Don't drink on an empty stomach. Be on guard…alcohol affects judgment and lowers inhibitions, leading to risky behavior that would be avoided otherwise. Don't leave a drink unattended. If you are away from your drink for a while, toss it. It's not worth the risk. And you already know not to drink and drive.

5. TRAVEL SMART
Always carry identification. Make sure someone at home knows how to reach you (in case there's a family emergency). Know your surroundings. Carry a map. Plan your journeys. Tell others where you are going.

We look forward to your return after a safe break!

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.
