-Please keep your door locked whether you’re planning on being away for a few hours or just a few minutes, or even just hanging out in your room. Keeping that door locked can save you from coming home to the loss of your computer, phone, iPod, or the other cool stuff you keep in your room, like that Proton Pack w/Plasma Blaster you got on EBay for fighting ghosts in the Old Middle School. Let’s not forget that locking that door also keeps YOU safe, whether you live on Campus or off, your safety is important to us. Stay Safe!
