College students have an increased risk of being stalked as compared to the rest of the population. Also, campuses have a low report rate of stalking. About 3/4 of students being stalked do not file reports.
College campuses offer an open atmosphere that is appealing for students. College buildings and residence halls without 24-hour security provide relatively easy access to almost anyone that wants to enter. Stalkers can easily familiarize themselves with a student’s comings and goings.
Nicholls State University is committed to providing an environment, in which visitors to and members of the campus community are provided with an atmosphere that enhances academic learning and considers the welfare of the community with the highest regard.
