The Walk for Light is an opportunity for students and staff to work together to identify safety-related issues on campus and document those concerns for repair or other appropriate follow-up. 

Observations may include identifying areas of concern due to poor or broken lighting, overgrown trees or bushes that reduce lighting, broken railings or uneven steps, newly cut paths due to ongoing construction, or other safety-related issues. Attendees we will break into groups and head out to different areas of campus. A final report is then compiled and sent to the appropriate department for repair.

 A debriefing and pizza party at Dickinson Hall follow the walk.
