Public Safety Advisory UPDATE - 10/5/15

Dear Campus Community,

We appreciate everyone’s continued alertness and cooperation today. The Department of Public Safety will continue to provide increased patrols on campus as well as maintain enhanced security measures.

The University is aware of vague references in postings and messages being made on various social media channels and message boards. We have shared these messages with the FBI who is also monitoring these sites. The FBI has so far found no corroborating information specific to any college or university.

We ask that you remain aware of your surroundings, report any suspicious activity or behavior to the Department of Public Safety via 215-596-7000, or the Blue Light Emergency Call boxes.

Please be sure to use the Walking and Riding Escorts available to you. Additionally, if you have not done so, please take a moment to sign up for the University Emergency Text Alert Notification System at http://alert.usciences.edu

Walking Escort - 215-895-1117

Penn Transit - 215-898-RIDE (7433)

Best regards,

Kim Carter

Interim Director of Public Safety
