WALK IN THE DARK TO HELP MAKE CAMPUS SAFER

Walking is a good way to stay healthy, but at the University of Houston, it also means a safer campus.

Students, faculty and staff will be gathering together the evening of Monday, Nov. 12, for the Walk in the Dark event.

At this annual gathering, members of the campus community will meet at the main entrance of the University Center at 7 p.m., break into groups and then walk the campus. Each group will walk in a pre-assigned area to find and point out places that make them feel unsafe.

Participants will report possible safety concerns, such as broken lights, uneven walkways or inoperable emergency phones. All the information will be compiled and submitted so repairs and improvements can be made.

The event is being organized by the Student Government Association, Plant Operations and the Department of Public Safety.
