SDSU Students Urged To Take Precautions

April 20, 2010, 5:50 PM by Ben Dunsmoor

SDSU Students Urged To Take Precautions
BROOKINGS, SD -  
While the most recent attack in Brookings didn't happen on campus, South Dakota State University officials are urging everyone to walk in groups at night, be aware of their surroundings and use the university police escort services.

Students received an e-mail from campus officials Tuesday afternoon about the recent attack.  In the past, officials have also posted signs on doors around campus urging them to take precautions.

Students say there's a heightened sense of awareness because of the recent attacks. More people are walking in groups and keeping an eye on their surroundings. They say even though Monday night's case happened off campus, it's still a concern.

"It's so close to campus. Brookings is a small town, so even if it is off campus, it's still close to campus," SDSU Freshman Molly Leclair said.

"Ever since the first one, I've had my boyfriend take me anywhere I needed to go, but other than that, we just stay in now. There's no reason to risk it. It could happen to anybody, it could happen to me, it could happen to anybody else. So it's not worth the risk for me," SDSU Freshman Liz Hoy said.
