is non-residents tailgating in back of residents to

5-member security department which patrols the
student campus. At Vassar, like the University of
an, UCLA and Indiana, the dorm entrances are
24 hours a day, only allowing residents who swipe
cess cards.
, security officers patrol the residence halls from
to 7 a.m. every night. In addition, Vassar, which is

a gated college, goes one step further than Indiana and
UCLA by requiring guests to sign in and be escorted by
hosts at all times. With these measures as well as night
patrols and blue light phones all over campus, "serious
crime is not very common" says Vassar's Director of
Security Donald Marsala.
Vassar senior Allison Sparks said the'one thing she
thought made campus security good is that it is receptive
and fosters a good relationship with students. "Students
feel security is definitely working for them," she said.
University of Michigan Housing officials have studied secu-
rity procedures at other schools, but have raised some reluc-
tance with door monitors. However, if the current increase in
crime continues, there could be drastic measures in place soon.
"We're always looking for ways to improve practices" said
Ian Steinman, director of Housing Security and associate
director of DPS.

Curtis said "it's a little bit early to
tell" if the new offerings have been
successful or not.
Nevertheless, the program is hurting
financially from the drop-off in appli-
cants. "It's a serious financial problem
that is short-term," said Curtis.
But in the long run, Talbot said he is
optimistic. "By the fall, we should be
back on track again,"he said.
Curtis shared the same sentiment.
"We're going to come out of this very
strong," he said.
