Textbook Theft Rises At Semester’s End

It’s that time of the semester when we need be careful with our belongings.  Campus police report that on-campus thefts tend to increase during the last weeks of every semester.  But raising awareness of this issue can help prevent some theft.

Please do not step away from your valuables, even for a short trip to the copier, printer or restroom.

Unattended laptops, textbooks, campus IDs, and bags attract thieves.   Since book buy-back occurs at the end of each semester, securing your textbooks is especially critical.

Ask a friend to watch them for you or (better yet) take them with you.
