Like most colleges or universities in America, Bryan College has taken recent measures to ensure ongoing safety and security for faculty, staff, and students. The campus welcomes visitors and requires them to check-in at the Stophel Welcome Center upon their arrival. Access to other campus buildings is via campus access card and can be arranged following visitor’s checking in at the Stophel Welcome Center. This protocol has been put in place to provide a balance between community access and mitigation of potential threats.
Never give information about another student to people you don’t know. Phone numbers, place of residence, or even a student’s whereabouts should not be given to strangers. Visitors who are looking for a student should be directed to the Office of Student Life or to a Resident Director.
All outside doors to residence halls are to remain closed and locked at all times. An ID card is required to open these doors. No one without card access should be allowed in residence halls without approval of the Resident Director.
Students are strongly encouraged to keep their rooms locked. The college is not responsible for students’ personal property.
