Teaching Students Personal Security

Posted: Updated:

Something as simple as carrying a mini-flashlight, a whistle, or some pepper-spray around with you can make a big difference.

With a booming community, knowing how to keep yourself safe is becoming more and more important.

College students gathered at the MSU Beaver Dam this week to learn about self-defense and the abuse of drugs and alcohol.

The Community Problem Solving Class put on the event as a way to raise awareness about keeping Minot safe.

Students were shown various booths covering issues such as alcohol awareness, abduction awareness, and stats about crime rates in North Dakota.

This Safety Summit was an opportunity for a unique approach on getting everyone aware of safety situations around them.

The event included speakers from the Minot Police department, self-defense activities, and a drawing for a 200 dollar prize at the end of the day.

(Alex Buchholz, Member of MSU Community Problem Solving Class) "Definitely in Minot I feel we, we feel really safe, we have a safe community. But, there's always, you always need to be aware of your surroundings and to not just get into that routine that you think you're super safe when there is possibilities for everything."

The Problem Solving Class is reaching out further by bringing the same summit to the mall on April 13th.
