Eighteen organizations gathered to educate students about their services, answer questions and hand out free items. Participants included the Student Wellness Center, the Student Safety board, Duke Energy, City of Cincinnati Fire Department, University Park Apartments and Cincinnati Metro.

“There’s so many different things around to help people realize what they need to do in order to stay safe when they look for homes,” Schroeder said. “Even things like the Metro, transportation, how to travel safely, and also before you leave for breaks making sure you have done things like locking your doors, unplugging your refrigerators and microwaves, all sorts of things.”
