A lot of nerves go along with moving to college for the first time, but for Camille Kahrs, safety isn't her biggest concern.
"It's up there I guess, but I never really thought about it."

"I think it's the sensitivity that was created by those tragedies that made us all think about what should we do what can we do to make our environment safer," says Ted Ayres, Vice President and General Counsel.
That's why they've installed a new text message alert system to keep students informed if anything were to happen.
