It’s that time of year again. The days are getting shorter and that means its getting dark earlier. Although Grand Rapids Community is a notably safe campus, sometimes that walk back to your car after a night class can be tense.
No need to worry, because you don’t have to make the trek alone. The Grand Rapids Community College Police Department offers escorts from your class to your car and vice versa. Class-to-class escorts are also provided. Generally, there is no wait for this free escort, however they do respond to emergencies first.
An additional comfort is that the police will wait to leave until your car is started safely. In case it doesn’t start, they also offer complimentarily jump-starts to students. The campus police also help if you’ve been locked out of your car.
Escorts are available 7 a.m.-11 p.m. Mon.-Thurs., 7 a.m.-10 p.m. Fri., 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Sat., and 11:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Sun. Call (616)-234-4010 and provide the police with your name and location.
