  • Document — Keep a journal of stalking incidents (date, time, place, event and witnesses).
  • Do not walk or ride alone. Call a friend or stay in the company of people you know and trust.
  • Change your travel routes frequently.
  • Identify as much as you can about your stalker, such as descriptive data or student status.

  • Contact the Records and Registration Office to complete the paperwork necessary to make your personal information unavailable and omitted from the directories.
  • Make sure your home is adequately safe and secure (doors, locks, windows, outside lighting, etc.).
