On April 19, the senior class attended the last part of a three-part College Life Series. The topic was on Campus Safety – protecting your "stuff," protecting yourself, and protecting your identity. The panelists included Corporeal Larry Kooken, Loyola University; Morgan Petersen '13, Resident Assistant, LSU; Franny Caputa, Resident Director, Tulane University; Keith Freire, Branch Manager, Regions Bank; and Courtney Thirsty, Assistant Branch Manager, Regions Bank.
The topics addressed included: the crime most prevalent on college campuses and how to protect yourself; how to establish a good relationship with your RA, HD, and campus police; how to protect your identity and the ways in which online scammers work and operate; how to best help a friend in need; how to protect yourself at night and at social events; and the best ways to budget time and money.
Following the campus safety panel, the seniors practiced for graduation and received their caps, gowns, and tassels.
