Know your numbers 

In an ideal world, campuses would be safe havens. Students could walk alone at night, leave cars unlocked and bikes unchained, and never need to know an emergency number.

I hate to be the one to say it, but when it comes to safety, college is very much the real world. Bad things can happen, ranging from the small (burglaries) to the large (campus intruders). Here are the numbers you need to know to keep yourself safe in the Springs.
