Safety Concerns | UVA Student Council

In light of recent alerts we have received, I am shocked that the school has sent out no real notifications of their own or no statements regarding how they intend to keep the student body safe. I also find it ridiculous that although Charlottesville Police offered descriptions of two different suspects from the reported abduction attempts, that was not mentioned in the emails students received. It is important for students to know that there are two different perpetrators. I have neither seen nor heard any additional safety measures being taken. Hearing things second hand makes it more scary and much less safe for all students on Grounds. Saferides has to start earlier. I’ve heard tour guides mentioning it on every UVA tour yet from my perspective students rarely find it an accessible option.
