Members of the President's Advisory Committee on Safety and Security confirmed at least one thing on their annual Safety Walkabout on Feb. 28: it sure gets cold around
here on winter evenings.
Committee members walked the campus, not to assess temperature and wind chill, but to review lighting and safety access, according to Eric Noll, assistant director of personnel
and chair of the committee.
Committee members identified about 30 items — ranging from additional lighting to more security phones — that will be reviewed with staff from Campus Safety and Campus Operations, Noll added.
Safety Walkabouts, held regularly for the past five years, have resulted in a number of new lights and safety improvements on campus, Noll said.
Also on the Walkabout were Steve Potenza, president of Psi Upsilon; Mark Winograd, Psi Upsilon; Edgar Letriz, assistant dean of students; Chris Rinaldi, R.A. and Gatekeeper;
Dennis Popeo, Jennifer Balsam and Michael Nelson, members of Safe Space (a confidential support group for victims of rape and sexual assault); Diane Meyers, campus operations;
Elaine Shull, human relations committee; Matthew Seekamp, R.A.; John Skumurski, finance; and Robert Tomeck, campus safety.
