I can't say enough about these two young men you see here. CSO Jamar Cummings and Jarod Gartrell have a future so bright, you can see our Chief is currently blinded by it! We are very proud of you two and glad we get to keep you with us for a few more years. Keep up the good work and continue to shine!

Chief working the grill. Thank you to all those that came out to Campus Crawl.

SPOTLIGHT TIME!!!! Viktoria Yilmaz is our senior CSO here at UPD and holds a very special place in our hearts! I'm sure many of you on campus have already met her through the years as she is very active with campus events. We are very proud she has been nominated for the Academic Excellence Award this year and hope she ends up taking it home! Way to go Viktoria! Keep on Shining!! Learn a bit more about her below: " Hi all! My name is Viktoria Yilmaz and I am you favorite community service officer here on campus! I am a criminal justice student at UAFS and I’ve been attending UAFS for about 4 years and I am getting ready to graduate in May 2018. I am also an international student from Stockholm, Sweden. I’ve been working with UPD as a CSO for about a year and a half. In my free time I like to hang out with my close friends, work out and go on adventures. When I do have time I like to travel to different states and so far I only have 14 down and the goal is to visit all of them. 3 things most people don’t know about me 1. I do not have a middle name 2. I hate diet coke and people who drink diet coke can’t be trusted 3. My favorite flowers are white lilies (If anyone ever decides to get me some)"

UAFS student Patrick is ready for the Battle, are you??? BATTTLE OF THE BANDS!

The dream team strikes again! Sgt. Meghan Janci and Jennifer Jennings Davis found this friendly girl touring the Math-Science building.

All donations were sent to Antioch for Youth and Family yesterday afternoon. Way to go Lions!

It's graduation day!!!! Congratulations to all those graduating. And a special "way to go!!!" For Molly Biggerstaff, William Hassler, and Sgt. MeghanJanci's eldest daughter Taylor!

One of our awesome student workers took time out of his day to put together a special Christmas tree with all our badge numbers. Thanks Jamar Cummings!! You are a special guy!!!
