• Avoid isolated areas
• Walk with confidence and with another person, if possible
• Don’t carry a lot of cash or valuables
• Let someone know where you are going/when you will be back
• Stay alert – Do NOT wear headphones
• If you suspect you are being followed, cross the street and run to the nearest populated area (business, home, etc.)

Biking or Jogging
• Go with a companion
• Vary your route
• Avoid isolated areas, especially after dark
• Stay alert – Do NOT wear headphones


If you are feeling uneasy about walking through campus alone after dark, call the CWU Courtesy Assistance Team (CAT) for a walking escort!  CAT operates 7 days a week from 7:00 PM until midnight and can be reached by dialing (509) 963-2950.
