Walk like a Penguin

Walk Safely On and Around Campus

Walk Safely!

With all of the snow and ice we’ve been experiencing,there has been an increase in slips, trips, and falls, so please take a moment to review some safe walking tips. We should all take precautions to avoid slipping.  Here are some steps we can all take to avoid injury:

  • Wear sturdy footwear like boots or slip-resistant shoes.

  • Walk like a penguin!

    • Walk slowly and watch the placement of your feet.

    • Use your arms to steady and balance yourself.

  • Use a backpack or bag to carry your items.

  • Watch out for black ice. Black ice looks like a wet surface but is solid ice.

  • Be mindful of where you park and be careful getting out of your car. You may be on ice.

  • Wipe your feet as you enter a building - the first steps inside a building are the most dangerous.

A few weeks ago we put out a survey to ask you about some of your favorite places on campus. Thank you to everyone who has submitted a response, and I’ve enjoyed reading about what inspires you about our great campus. I’d love to hear from more of you, and you can still send in a response here.

Every year in October we have our annual community fund drive, and many of these organizations count on our support throughout the year too. I am always amazed by the generosity and commitment of our employees who find different opportunities to give back. Recently, I became aware of one of our dedicated FM employees, Mike Coleman, who volunteers his time to support the Multiple Sclerosis society. For the past 16 years Mike has participated in a 300 mile bike ride to raise money MS.
