Safe Walk

We provide an on-campus walking service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

How does it work?

Call us at 417-836-5509, and we will dispatch a campus safety specialist to your location to escort you to a new location.

No more than two students will be escorted from the same point of origin to the same campus property destination. Depending on the availability of a campus safety specialist, there may be delays.
