The campus community is made aware of the availability of the BSC Annual
Security Report in a variety of methods. They receive direct mailings via the BSC
(USPS) campus mail system, and by the various campus media sources. While a
hard copy is not distributed, the exact URL for the electronic version and
information regarding how to receive a hard copy upon request is included in all
notifications. Further, within the first week of the fall semester all incoming
freshmen are briefed on the existence of the report during a mandatory personal
safety session facilitated by the Campus Police and members of the Office of
