NSU’s SGA addresses campus safety and protection

Northwestern State University’s Student Government Association passed a resolution to require the closure of all campus gates except for the Caspari Street entrance between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. The measure was introduced to “promote and enhance the safety and protection of Northwestern State University students by changing the hours that the gates to campus are opened and closed,” according to the resolution.

The SGA will work with university administration to ensure that University Police have a presence in the guard shack at the Caspari Street entrance to monitor vehicular activity on campus.

“Having the new gate closure time will assist in the safety of the NSU community as we are able to monitor traffic entering the campus after hours,” said University Police Captain Wesley Harrell.
