Locker Reminders: Do not leave valuables or books

Office of Student Engagement
Monday, March 3rd - Friday, March 14th
12:00 PM - 12:00 PM
Throughout the Building

Please be reminded to not leave any valuables in your locker, including laptops or purses. We have had a few incidents where items have been taken from lockers and a few of those have been when students have not carefully secured their combination locks. Once you close the lock, be sure to spin the dial to ensure that it cannot be opened by simply pulling on the lock. Be cautious and do not leave items in your locker overnight, on weekends or during the break, when risk elevates.
