Subject: Use Caution While Crossing Streets

 

Dear Students,

 

We want to alert you that two students were struck by vehicles while crossing Church Street in two separate instances last week.  Both accidents occurred on Church Street between High and Pine Streets.  Although both of the students involved required medical attention, we are relieved that their injuries were minor and they were each able to return to campus after being treated at the hospital.

 

Given that daylight savings time ended on November 1st and it is getting dark earlier in the evening when many are commuting home at the end of their work day, we ask you to exercise an abundance of caution as you cross the many busy streets that run through our campus.  This is especially necessary if you are on your phone and/or wearing ear buds.  Please also be sure to use available crosswalks.

 

As always, please do let us know if you have suggestions for improving student safety on our campus.

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Scott Rohde

Director of Public Safety

Vice President for Student Affairs
