Idea Title:

Should the Union create a safety service to ensure students don’t walk home alone?

 

What the idea is about:

Create a safety service that will make walking to and from campus more secure at night.

 

Why have you proposed it?:

I am an exchange student and at my home university we have a program called Walkhome, which essentially is a safety service where people can have someone walk home with them at night to feel safer or just have company.  The idea of safety in numbers is perpetuated here to reduce the number of attacks and crime committed at night.  Boundaries are also put in place to make sure that the "walkers" are not being forced to walk an unnecessary distance.  This service could be useful to help students feel safe while walking from campus to their residence.
