YSU takes the safety of the University community very seriously.  For current information regarding security procedures and policies, see the YSU Police web page.

Perhaps the most important things students can do immediately is to sign up for Penguin Alert.  Penguin Alert is the University’s emergency notification system that instantly reaches mobile devices when an urgent situation needs to be communicated.

More relevant to this course, students should be aware that the doors to the lecture hall (Ward Beecher Science Hall, Room 3022) are permanently locked from the outside. Once the doors are closed, no one can enter without a key or unless someone on the inside opens the doors.  Obviously, this will present a challenge for late students.  Hence, this is yet another reason to not be tardy for lecture.

At present, the door to the laboratory (Cushwa Hall, Room 2321) is not locked permanently, thereby allowing students to use the facility during open laboratory periods.

Should you have a concern regarding your safety in the classroom or laboratory, please apprise Dr. Cooper.
