Campus security is lacking, says student representative

What should you do if there’s a shooter on campus? According to SCC’s Safety and Security website, there are a few options. If you’re in a classroom, stay there. If you’re outdoors, find refuge in a classroom. Security also suggests hiding, running, playing dead, or, if no other option presents itself, fighting. Pick a course of action, then wait for emergency responders, only if 911 has been called.
