As part of Wichita State University’s ongoing commitment to campus safety, the university is proud to announce the launch of Rave Guardian, a free mobile app for Android and Apple smartphones that turns any smartphone into a personal safety device. By downloading this free safety app, students, faculty and staff can enhance their personal safety both on and off campus.


With Guardian, users can create a profile of information about themselves, and invite family and friends to their safety network. When needed, the user can request one or more of their guardians to virtually walk with them on or off campus. It’s like having an emergency blue light system and a trusted friend with you at all times.
