Columbine. Sandy Hook. Virginia Tech. These schools have all been targets of mass shootings and have paved the way to increased school security and emergency procedures to prevent the unthinkable from reoccurring. 

Arizona State University is highly aware of this, and have taken measures too to prevent unsafe behavior from occurring.

We have security guards, police, blue lights, and even a live safe app. Yet one area of high concern has been ignored.

The only residential hall on campus is a serious risk to students security due to the lack of monitored stairwell access.

Century hall is the only residential hall on the ASU Polytechnic campus. It has out door stair wells on the northeast, southeast, northwest, and southwest corners of the building. However, these stairwell doors are frequently broken and unlocked, leaving access to anyone.  These stairs lead to the three levels of the building, each with a door that remains unlocked 24/7, granting anyone at anytime access to all the student dorms. 

Should we wait till someone chooses to take advantage of this security risk and endanger the lives of hundreds of students? Sign this petition to advocate for safer residential hall living by creating monitored, locked stairwells only accessible by card reader.
