Colorado State University releases an annual report of campus crime statistics and important safety information to the university community each fall. This report informs the university community about important procedures, policies, crime prevention programs and campus crime statistics. The report is available at https://safetyreport.colostate.edu/.

Two-thirds of fire truck responses to a CSU residence hall or campus apartment last year weren't due to a fire, but to smoke from or odor of burnt food. While there weren’t any fires related to these calls, about a third of fires across the nation each year are unintentionally started by unattended food. Don’t leave your lunch while it’s heating up on a stove top or microwave. Keep an eye on that bagel, bag of popcorn, or other yumminess, and make sure towels and food packages are away from heating elements. It will not only save your lunch from an inedible end, it also can save your home.

Our thoughts are with our brothers and sisters in blue in Johnstown, and with the family and friends of Yuri Thomas.

Hey Rams, did you know that while marijuana may be legal in Colorado, it’s prohibited on campus, including in residence halls? https://health.colostate.edu/marijuana/

The most common date-rape drug is alcohol. There is a direct correlation between increased alcohol consumption and the inability to give clear consent or to understand if consent has been given. Someone who is under the influence of drugs or alcohol and cannot make decisions, cannot legally give consent. https://health.colostate.edu/sexual-assault-and-violence-prevention/

Students, each fall we send you an email with some important safety reminders, as well as important information about the Rocky Mountain Showdown. Have a great holiday weekend, Rams. Stay safe and be smart! https://safety.colostate.edu/

Hey, what's going on with all of the patrol cars outside of the Lory Student Center? CSUPD and our community law enforcement partners are getting ready to fan out across neighborhoods near campus for Community Welcome. Tonight, more than 60 officers are members of teams from the university and city, and will visit neighborhoods where a concentration of students live to share information about city ordinances and university behavior expectations, and encourage students and their non-student neighbors to meet and get to know each other.

CAUTION: a recent phishing attempt has targeted students at CSU and other universities. Phishing is the attempt to fraudulently convince people to give personal information over email or other channels based on deception, including faked “from” addresses. Some of these attempts can be quite convincing, using official graphics and accurate contact information in signature blocks. In recent weeks, universities across the country — including CSU — have been subject to phishing attacks designed to gain university login credentials. With these credentials, attackers can then log in to student portals like RamWeb and view *or change* important personal information, including things like bank account information for depositing financial aid refunds. Protect yourself from phishing. Follow these simple guidelines: *Don’t assume that an email is valid just because of who it appears to come from. *Don’t give important personal information — including passwords — over email conversations. *Be extremely cautious of clicking links in emails. **Open a new browser window and type in the URL instead. ** “Mouse over” the link to confirm that it goes where it says it’s going to go. **If you do click, immediately check for the HTTPS padlock icon. *If you have concerns about an email, call the sender instead (at a number from the online directory, not in the email) Afraid you’ve been victimized by phishing? If you are a Colorado State University student and you think you may have lost money, or if you feel unsafe, call the CSU Police Department, 970-491-6425 or 911. To check on an email or report a phish, please email the Information Security team, soc@colostate.edu
