It’s Fire Safety Week, and and we want to keep our campus safe! We have a week full of events planned to help everyone become more aware of how to stay safe and prevent fires, starting at 11 am on Monday, October 8 with a mock room burn. Meet us at the parking lot north of the dining hall to watch as a fake residence hall room is set on fire to see just how quickly a room can go up in flames! After that there will be various activities throughout the week to educate everyone on how to prevent fires and maximize fire safety both on and off campus. Check out the full schedule for the week:
