After a violent attack on students at The Ohio State University, ISU prepares for the worse.
“It’s unlikely that it will happen at Indiana State, but it’s likely that it will happen some where so every University has to be prepared.” ISUPD Chief, Joe Newport told WTWO News Monday. “When ever you have college campuses that have some sort of violent action on them, everybody who is in charge of safety at universities, take a look at it.”
It didn’t take long for students to hear about the news.
“It’s a little bit scary just to know anything can happen on a college campus. You can be walking around and something like that will happen and you’ll never know. It’s really unexpected,” said student Ryan Gierman.
However it does help knowing the resources the university has.
“Any time something happens you get an email alert you can sign up for rave alert, it’s free. You’ll get an email alert immediately if something happens or if someone reports a crime even if it didn’t happen and they are not sure,” said Gierman.
Chief Newport says they watch for how the events unfold and how the school handles the incident to help prepare for the unthinkable.
