USC Students Say App Helps Them Feel Safe Around Campus
December 06, 2017
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO)- Students at the University of South Carolina said they received a crime alert Tuesday evening regarding a man giving rides to students but refusing to let them out the car. Now university officials are reminding students that if you want to stay safe on campus there’s an app for that.
An app called Rave Guardian is available to any student or faculty member on campus. You register by using your university email address. It allows you create a profile that makes it easier for campus police to find and help you during an emergency. It also allows people you trust or guardians to know where you are during set times.
Students told ABC Columbia News officials promote the app around campus and many students actually use it.
