MSU Safety Measures for Students on Campus

It's been three days since Eric Ramsey, a thirty-year-old Mount Pleasant man was shot and killed by police after kidnapping a Central Michigan student right from campus and sexually assaulting her.

That horrifying incident has college students across the state talking about safety on their campses, including MSU's.

 "I think it's something that can happen anywhere," said MSU Junior Jenna Virant.

Virant says she can never be too careful.

"No one thinks it could happen to them personally," Virant said, "but I think it's definitely a possibility.'"

In terms of keeping students safe, Maia Rowles says, she's happy with the university's efforts.

"Definitely, they take adequate measures. They actually require that we all attend an awareness seminar when you're a freshman," Rowles says.

That's not the only thing the university has done in an effort to keep students safe, they've also placed emergency phones all across campus.

One MSU police sargent says the emergency phone system has been re-vamped and improved within the past few years, making students in distress a little safer.

Students say, regardless, that it is essential they take extra precautions to stay safe.

"Being with somebody's really important. trying not to be by yourself and not walking out to late, just being aware of your surroundings."
