When you are in parking lots either coming to class or leaving class be aware of your surroundings.
Have your keys ready to unlock your car.
If someone approachs you and asks for your money or property, it is usually best to give it to them not resist.
If you are the victim of a crime, remember as many details of the suspect's description as you can and report it to the police as soon as possible.
