Tips for hosting parties, and a few other safety reminders
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
With good weather predicted for the weekend, many students will be enjoying activities outside. Here are a couple safety reminders:

  • When you host a party in your rental, you assume significant legal responsibilities. Have a plan to handle uninvited guests, and don't allow your party to get out of hand. Understand, too, that open parties sometimes draw people who case your rental for things to steal — either during the party or afterward.
  • Anytime you are in a metropolitan environment, it is wise to travel in groups and park in well-lit areas. If you are walking and feel threatened by a person or group of people, cross the street, turn around or enter a store or business. Then call our police at 330-972-7048 and tip them off about what you have seen.
  • When you park, hide from sight anything of value, and be sure to lock the doors.
  • Alcohol and other drugs can impair your perceptions and decision-making. Do not place yourself in a vulnerable position by being intoxicated or under the influence of other drugs.

We hope you have a fun and safe weekend.

spacer image

Do you have a meal plan that leaves you with too many meal swipes to use up at the end of the week? Are you unsure of what to get, but don't want to waste you hard earned college funds? Well if so, here is the solution!!!

Serving with Swipes is a non-profit student organization in which you can use your unused meal swipes to donate food to the nearby food pantry. This is a great way to help those who are less fortunate while also learning not to be wasteful.

Just use your extra meal swipes at the Zees stores to purchase nonperishable, canned, or boxed foods. Drop them in the boxes located in the Zees stores at Exchange, Rob's Cafe, Quaker Square, or the Student Union.

Serving with Swipes-A great way to give back to the community and help those who are poor.
