by: Cha Ron K. SattlerLOCK YOUR DOORS! During fall quarter, there were several incidents where residents were surprised by an intruder in their apartment. In each case, the residents had left their door unlocked. In addition, the vast majority of thefts from the apartments occur in unlocked units: Be safe and keep your stuff. Lock the doors and carry your keys.
SLOW DOWN! There have been numerous complaints from students about cars driving with excessive speed in complexes. Remember that there are many pedestrians and cyclists about at all times and in all conditions. For everyone’s safety – slow down!
SMOKING is prohibited in RIT housing and within 25 feet of any residential building. If you choose to smoke, be considerate and smoke away from the building. Dispose of the butts appropriately – bring your own ash tray or a can. If you’re ready to quit smoking, the Student Health Center has a wealth of resources to help: Individual support, FREE nicotine replacement treatment, and more. Stop by the SHC or go to www.rit.edu/studenthealth for more information.
WASHERS AND DRYERS: Free laundry is a wonderful thing, however a couple of reminders:
Once the cycle starts, the machine is locked. If you have another sock to throw in, save it for you next load.
Do not leave laundry unattended! A number of thefts have been reported. If you must step away from your load, set an alarm on your cell phone or text pager to remind you to come back at the end of the cycle. (Besides, you know how irritating it is when someone else has monopolized the machines!).
