Join the Campus Lighting Safety Walk

By Dateline Staff on January 14, 2020 in University

An event with free pizza and T-shirts has to be just for students, right? Not this time! We’re talking about the Campus Safety Lighting Walk, when staff and faculty as well as students are invited to help keep the night bright.

Facilities Management holds this event every winter in partnership with the Police Department. Volunteers will split into teams to walk different zones to look for lights that are not working or too dim, and areas that may need additional lighting. Teams will turn over their notes to Facilities Management for the scheduling of lighting repairs.

This year’s walk is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28. Rally ’round the flagpole on the Memorial Union’s South Patio (between the Quad and the MU). Please RSVP here. 

The organizers advise participants to wear comfortable shoes and a warm jacket. Flashlights will be provided, and the walk will end no later than 8 p.m.

Oh, and don’t forget: free T-shirts for the first 100 participants!

How to report lighting issues

There’s no need to wait for the safety walk to report lighting issues. Submit a work order online; call the Customer Experience Center, 530-752-1655; or send a text to 61411. If you are reporting a broken light, remember to include the location and-or the pole number.
