    I just returned from a conference in D.C. on electronic security services. One presentation from a rep of the DoE stressed the need for universities to incorporate effective emergency communication measures. It’s good to know OSU is focused on this.

    It’s sad students need to even consider such possibilities. Who would have thought schools would need have to have “sniper drills” and “emergency communication measures.” I guess it’s just an unfortunate reality.
