Parking close to campus is something that most students aim for. Some parking lots around campus, like those across the street from the business building on South West St., can be a long walk to class. The recent reports about armed robberies happening there, on UTA’s parking lots 50 and 51, had students trying to be more cautious since these robberies happened while daylight. I decided to speak with a Dallas Police Officer to give us some tips and advice for students when walking alone. I also spoke with a student about the precautions he is taking while walking to class.
