Safe Celebrations

 

9 out of 10 students choose to watch out for friends during celebratory events and make plans to get home safely.

 

Preparing for celebratory events

MSU’s top priority remains the safety and well-being of our Spartan community — on our campuses and in our surrounding off-campus neighborhoods. The responsibility of keeping the greater campus community safe belongs to all of us.

MSU-UM Celebrate Responsibly

Michigan State University and the University of Michigan put their rivalry aside to encourage students, alumni and fans to be safe as they cheer on their football teams. As fans travel from near and far for the 115th big game, campus leadership from both sides of the field came together to encourage responsible behavior for fans of all ages.

Watch

Most Spartans know how to enjoy their football Saturdays with class.

  • 9 out of 10 watch out for friends to make sure they stay safe.

  • 8 out of 10 stay with the same group of friends when they are tailgating.
  • 8 out of 10 arrange for a designated driver.

Go Green!

With the Halloween season upon us, we encourage you to take steps to stay safe during this busy time of year.

  • Travel in groups and stay with people you know and trust. Never leave a friend alone.
  • When traveling around campus and East Lansing, choose well-lit, highly-traveled routes. If an area feels unsafe, leave.
  • Call 911 if you see anything suspicious or if you find a fellow Spartan in need.
  • Think twice about your costume; culturally inappropriate costumes can be offensive.
  • Not everyone dressed in a Halloween costume has good intentions. If something does not seem safe, it probably isn’t. Trust your instincts.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
