Seton Hall’s response to this past weekend’s incident

Seton Hall University’s response to the incident during the weekend of 9/25/2010.

From Student Affairs
We are all shocked, outraged and saddened by the events of this past weekend.  A criminal act took a young life, and left a deep scar on the University community.  In the aftermath of these tragic events, my staff and I are working hard to meet the needs of all of our students.  I wanted to give you an update on some of the latest developments.

Specific initiatives undertaken by the University related to student safety include:
Redirected SOPD foot and vehicle patrols to zones adjacent to the University
Increased SHU security patrols on the campus perimeter
Expanded use of security cameras
Expanded CASE van service from 5pm until 2am, Monday through Friday.
Expanded SHUFly schedule:

Monday through Wednesday        7:40am until 2:00am
Thursday and Friday                        7:40am         until 2:30am
Saturday                                1:00pm until 2:30am
Sunday                                12:30pm until 2:30am

Let me also take this opportunity to repeat our advice about safety:
Walk in groups when off-campus or utilize campus or public transportation.
Always be aware of your surroundings and carry a cell phone.
Immediately report any concerns to SOPD (973.763.3000) or Public Safety 973.761.9300).

I also want to remind all students of the availability of Counseling Services, located on the 2nd floor of Mooney Hall.  Counseling Services, Residence Life staff, and all other Student Affairs staff may be reached 24/7 through Public Safety at 973.761.9300.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of us for assistance.

Siren & Pirate Alert test this Wednesday at noon

This Wednesday, September 29th at noon, the university will be conducting a test of the emergency alert siren.  The test of the siren will be followed by a test of the Pirate Alert electronic emergency notification system.

Please note this will only be a test.

If an actual emergency were to take place, it’s important to know what to do:

1. Get inside – anywhere. Run into the closest building.

2. Lock or barricade yourself in a room.

3. Quietly monitor the University’s web site or Pirate Alert for further information.

For more information on emergency preparedness, please check out the siren’s website.
