As African-American History Month ends and spring break approaches, officials at Norfolk State planned a series of special events to heighten awareness about campus safety. The “Campus Safety and High Risk Behavior Education Week” was held Feb. 22–26, and kicked off with a health and safety promotion during the NSU Men’s and Women’s Basketball doubleheader on Feb. 22.  Led by the divisions of finance and administration and student affairs, a campus safety information booth was set up on Tues., Feb. 23, in the Student Center from noon to 3 p.m. On Wed., Feb. 24, NSU Police Chief Troy Covington was expected to spin the latest hits at Scott-Dozier Dining Hall at 6 p.m. The week-long event was held to increase the number of people who download the LiveSafe app and sign-up for NSU’s e-Alerts system. LiveSafe allows users to submit information about criminal activity quickly and uses location-sharing information during an emergency. NSU’s mass notification system, via Everbridge, is an efficient and quick method to get messages about emergency situations on or around the campus. Staff was on hand during the events to help students, faculty and others to familiarize themselves with LiveSafe and NSU e-alerts.
