Your Laptop: A Thing of Value

June 22, 2011

Theft is the number one crime on the Drexel campus, and your laptop is a prime target. Please do not leave your laptop unattended for any amount of time in any public space, and that includes the library. Going to the bathroom, stepping away to make a phone call, and popping outside for a hotdog or cigarette all count as lengths of time away. Even if you ask a neighbor to watch your stuff, his or her studiously bent eyes might not be quick enough to catch a seasoned thief. Wherever you go, no matter how long, if your laptop is out of site, it will very likely be stolen. It happened today, and it happens a lot. So please: Protect your stuff.
