Posted: September 18, 2015
More than 25 local, statewide and federal organizations,
agencies and local services will participate in Gannon University's
annual Campus Safety Expo on Tuesday, Sept. 22 from 10 a.m. to 1
p.m. in the Waldron Campus Center, 214 W. Seventh St.
Incoming students, especially those new to Erie, and the entire
Gannon community are invited to become more familiar with the
wealth of vital community resources available and to learn how to
access those services.
Product displays, free samples, giveaways and a variety of
take-home tips and bystander intervention strategies will be
offered by organizations as large as the U.S. Border Patrol as well
as by student organizations on campus.
The event, with the theme Prepare, Protect, Prevent, is offered
in recognition of National Campus Safety Awareness Month and
presented by Gannon University's campus police and safety
department and the Sexual Assault and Violence Education (SAVE)
"Gannon makes a priority of the physical, emotional and social
safety of each member of our campus community," said Katie Allison,
Gannon University prevention/education outreach coordinator. "The
Campus Safety Expo aims to maximize our students' experience by
equipping them with the knowledge, tools and skills of personal and
social safety as well as emergency preparedness."
