The safety of our hackers is a priority, and we are working with UCPD and Campus Safety to ensure that our event stays secure! AggieHost will be patrolling the venue overnight, and we wanted to share some tips and resources:
- Always be alert to your surroundings. Be aware of your location and situations that could make you vulnerable.
- Avoid people and situations that make you nervous. Trust your instincts!
- Don’t let yourself be distracted by devices while walking. Avoid wearing headphones while walking. If possible, remove one so you can hear what is going on around you.
- Walk with friends or colleagues when possible. Avoid areas or situations that make you uncomfortable.
- Use the Safe Ride Service if you’re leaving the venue after 8PM. Use the Transloc App or call (530) 754-2677 to request a Safe Ride. Note that Safe Ride stops accepting requests at 2:45AM.
Remember that you can exit and enter the venue as you please - so don’t hesitate to leave before nightfall if you have a safety concern! UCPD is working with us to meet the increased demand for Safe Rides during the event.
