You may be heading to college for the first time, or maybe it will be the start of your 4th, and hopefully last year as an undergrad. Whichever it may be, you are still going to be a major target for property theft. The latest statistics for this crime have not gone down on college campuses. It would not surprise me if we find in a few years, when crime statistics for last year become available, that property crime was way up. Bad economies have a way of making that happen.

I especially like the first tip: “Think like a criminal.” It is a great game to play, to focus your awareness, and to make you more alert to what is going on around you. Remember, college brings a lot of freedom, but with it comes responsibility.
