The Ultimate Guide to College Safety: How to Protect Your Child From Online & Offline Threats To Their Personal Safety At College & Around Campus
Book Description
Safety has become the highest priority for students, parents, educators and administrators. However, the educational tools and reference guides that contain this essential information for them is lacking since most safety material focuses on the school itself and public safety professionals, not the individual.

New college students are led to believe that sharing personal information and freely expressing their opinions on social media is expected and their right to free speech. What they fail to understand is that any information they reveal may be used to steal their identity, prevent them from being hired and possibly even get them hurt or killed.

Topics included in this comprehensive book include: defining safety concerns, safety awareness, establishing personal boundaries, routines & comfort zones, problem roommate(s), bullying, cyberbullying & hazing, the dangers of mixing alcohol and energy drinks, cyber-security & online safety, social media & cell phone safety, phishing scams & identity theft, active shooter preparedness & defensive actions, viruses, malware and ransomware, physical threat self-defense / safe dating / sexual harassment, alcohol, drugs and prescription medication abuse, party, bar & club safety, caffeine and energy drinks, travel safety - both on campus and semesters abroad, credit card and ATM safety, dorm room safety (fires, electrical, cooking, outside threats), personal safety alarms and apps, building confidence & developing a never quit attitude, health, fitness, nutrition & hygiene.

You can give your child the most comprehensive resource ever compiled about how to stay safe in both the physical world and digital world. This will help ensure that students are made aware of the various threats to their personal safety that exist both online and offline so they will ultimately be safer during their college years and beyond.

The author has worked as an information technology consultant since 1995, a self-defense instructor for over 20 years, and is a former university public safety professional. He is fully qualified to educate students and others based on decades of knowledge that has been distilled into this comprehensive book.
