The safety escort service is provided by the Campus Safety LASER (Law Abiding Students Ever Ready) Team during fall and spring terms for University community members in need of transport assistance whether due to injury, disability, adverse weather (not including severe storms with lightning) or for general safety.
Upon request, a student will be assigned an escort to the requested on-campus destination. In addition, the escort service, when not en route to a destination, is on motorized patrol and will offer assistance to pedestrians who are walking alone at night on campus.
