    Tawan,

    I think that is the responsibility of Residence Life to “strongly reccomend” that students follow certain safety and loss prevention policies. (or they could post your blog on every door). Then its up to the students to act accordingly.

    Hey Tawan, you gave some really great pointers for students and parents to be aware of . I remember our days as RA’s. First year students definitely need to be aware of who they interact with and be mindful of their surroundings. I think that students need more guidance in internet safety and how thier information can be easily expoited if they are not careful.

    Thanks! I too was an RA and without fail electronics did grow legs. LOL. In my experience, I don’t think first year orientation programs spend enough time going over basic things like being mindful of your social media activity or locking your stuff up. But then again, is it really the college’s job to educate college students on campus safety? What do you all think?

    Good article. When is was a RA, I can’t tell you how many students came knocking on my door complaining of electronics that grew legs. My first question was always, “was your door locked?” more often than not the answer was no.

    Great reminders, I think a lot of students view college as a fantasy summer camp and forget that someone out there might want their new computer for themselves. Duh! Common sense.
