If you are a victim or witness to any on-campus offense, AVOID RISKS and contact the administrative office or law enforcement immediately.

• Should gunfire or discharged explosives occur on campus, you should take cover immediately, using all available concealment.  After the disturbance, seek emergency first aid if necessary.
