Campus Safety

CSU is a great place to meet new people, make new friends, and for first-time college students, find their place in the community. College is also a place to stay vigilent and responsible. Crimes are most likely to occur when students let their guard down and are among strangers. If you witness a crime, you can alert our police anonymously from online.

While attending our campus we also ask that our students, faculty and staff follow all emergency instructions and exercise good judgement.
