Some outdoor safety tips for the three-day weekend

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

With a long holiday weekend ahead, here are some safety tips if camping, hiking or backpacking are on your get-away list!

  • Research cell phone coverage for your trip. If you will be out of range, find out how to access services for the ranger or local law enforcement. Check out communication devices at outdoor stores that allow you to text, boost your signal or use your cell phone as a radio in case of emergency.
  • Leave at home or in a safety deposit box all jewelry, electronics, unneeded cash and credit cards. Connect with other campers, and if they seem trustworthy, agree to watch each other’s tent and camping equipment when out on a hike or day excursion.
  • Take valuables with you if at all possible or use a diversion safe that looks like an ordinary object.
  • Hide items that you need to store in your vehicle and transfer them to your trunk prior to arriving at your destination.
  • Lock your vehicle and close windows and sunroofs.
  • Look for people loitering around parking areas, and don’t leave your car if there are suspicious persons hanging around.
  • Trust your instincts! If something feels “off” about a campsite or campers, follow your gut.
  • Carry a whistle or noise-maker to draw attention to yourself if you need help.
  • Make a family plan about what to do if any family member becomes separated from the group.

These great tips are courtesy of the City of Portland’s Crime Prevention Program.

Important Vehicle Registration Information for Fall 2018

Monday, May 21st, 2018

We’ve been receiving calls wondering when vehicle registration for this fall will open up, and the answer is July! It will be a roll-out registration like last summer, with those who will be seniors registering first, then juniors, then sophomores, etc. Information will be posted in the Daily Bruin and sent via email, so keep watching for further details.

Commuter and graduate permits won’t be limited, but residential permits will be, so please carefully consider if you really do need a car on campus – or if taking advantage of the Enterprise Car Share program would be a much cheaper alternative, as permits will be $100 per semester.

Questions? Contact Nadine Kincaid (nkincaid@georgefox.edu).

Phase II viewing is today in Macy basement

Thursday, May 3rd, 2018

Plant Services is hosting its annual Phase II event this week. At the end of every school year many students have good reusable items that they do not want to take home over the summer. These items often include blankets, clothing, kitchen supplies, small appliances, radios, room decorations, furniture, etc.

Items are open for viewing in the Macy basement today (Friday) from 8 a.m. to noon. After students and staff view these items, the remaining items will be donated to other local charities.

In an effort to keep the dumpsters from overflowing and to be better stewards of our resources, Phase II was initiated. Many students have benefited from these items. For example, summer work-study students often find items they need for apartment living.

Questions? Contact Dwayne Astleford (dastlefo@georgefox.edu).
