Over the past few weeks I have become extremely concerned with regards to the overwhelming number of Public Safety emails and text messages.  I no longer feel safe as a student at UC, even on campus.  The mass robberies and violence in our community need to be ceased, and we the students need to stand united to bring attention to our need for protection.

      In August 2013 UC President, Santa Ono authored a letter to parents detailing safety initiatives his safety committee had begun to implement to reduce crime, including installing new street lights and fixing existing street lights in the Clifton Heights, University Heights and Fairview (CUF) neighborhoods. UC students and residents who live in CUF neighborhoods and regularly utilize the city steps located in Fairview have been waiting months for a new street light to be installed to replace the defective street light pole removed by Duke Energy. After numerous follow-up calls to Duke Energy an engineer was dispatched yesterday by Duke Energy to simply assess the situation. In the meantime, UC students who regularly utilize the city steps as a short cut have resorted to using flashlights when they utilize the steps during the early morning and early evening hours.

      Since UC decided to assume responsibility for installing and maintaining street lights in CUF neighborhoods, perhaps UC should provide some oversight of the street light program to ensure the successful and timely implementation of the safety initiative.

      When I was walking home from school last month, four kids came up behind me, punched me in the face, and tried to take my phone.

      This is very important to me because I have a granddaughter and a daughter-in-law attending UC and I am concerned for their safety.
