With shorter hours of daylight now, this is a good time to begin using the Campus Escort Service (CES), a student organization that serves the entire University community. The group’s main goal is to offer an alternative to walking alone after dark.
To ensure absolute safety, each member of the Campus Escort Service must pass a police security background check, an interview and a reference check. Escorts then attend a comprehensive “on-the-job” training session. They must wear a photo identification badge at all times.
To use this service, dial 372-8360 and provide the dispatcher with your:
- First and last name
- Current location and phone number
- Desired destination
- Brief personal description for easy identification
- Desired pick-up time
The dispatcher will then give you an estimated time of arrival for your escort.
Students living off campus may also use the service. CES provides an escort to any location on campus, from campus to any single location within Bowling Green city limits, and from an off-campus location to campus. Although a ride is not always guaranteed, an escort will always be provided, so dress for the weather.
Campus Escort Service hours
Sunday through Thursday from 6p.m. to 6 a.m. and Friday from 6p.m. to 10p.m.
