Kent State University- Kent, OH

Kent State’s Office of Student Success Programs has taken a three-pronged approach to teaching safety to incoming freshmen. This includes a safety session at Destination Kent State, residence hall meetings during Welcome Weekend and a required ALICE training during the First Year Experience course. The campus police department will also give A.L.I.C.E. training in FYE classes. A.L.I.C.E. stands for Alert, Lockdown, Information, Counter and Evacuation. It is designed to teach students what to do in case of an active shooter on campus. Community Resource Officer Tricia Knoles said more optional safety presentations will be given throughout the semester, especially in the dorms.
