Safety Is Priority No. 1

Dear Clemson:

There is no higher priority for Clemson University than the safety of our students, faculty, staff and campus visitors. This has always been true but since the tragedy at Virginia Tech and other campus incidents, Clemson has put more focused attention into efforts to keep you safe.

The CU Safety website at provides crucial information on all aspects of safety and security, from emergency preparedness to crime prevention. Students and others can watch safety videos, get the latest on flu epidemics, report a safety issue, sign up for CU Safe text alerts, learn about hazardous weather, disaster warnings, evacuation procedures and much more.

This publication, which documents all safety programs and policies, is also a part of that larger effort and is also accessible from the web. It reports crime and fire safety statistics, tells you who to call and what to do if you are the victim of a crime, and offers tips to increase your safety awareness.

Although Clemson is safe, no campus in America is completely crime-free. We need your help to make sure that you and your classmates remain safe and secure. Thank you for giving your careful attention to this important information.
