By Mat Herron
Campus Editor

A stranger quickly ap roaches you,
demanding that green stu f in your wal-
let or purse.

At this point, you can either be com—
pliant or be a hero.

Tony Ral h prefers Choice A.

“Definitely call 91 1,” the assistant res-
idence life director said. “UK lice are
never more than a couple 0 minutes
from any location.”

Stephanie Bastin, the crime preven-
tion coordinator for the UK Police
Department, also said dialing 911 is the
best option if a student is caught in a
dangerous situation.

In Margaret 1. Kin Library or in the
various residence ha! 5, she advises stu-
dents to call UK lice or fla down one
of the security 0 cers patro ling build-
ings and Central Campus. Lexington
p0 ice and sherifi‘s officers, Bastin said,
constantly make rounds.

Resident advisers and hall directors
make it a point to enforce visitation
hours for opposite- and same-sex visi—

Student RAs patrol the building each
night and keep residents’ names on the
front counters of the dorms, Ral h said.

Only Haggin and Donovan lalls in
Central Campus make residents slide
their student identification cards to get
,in, but Ralph said that policy may reach
other dorms soon.

Ralph also said recruiting is going on
for under raduates to patrol during the
night whiFe the regular staff sleeps.

A common thread linking dorm rob-
beries is unlocked doors. Ralph said
when he worked at Indiana University,

some students would run down halls
checking each door. The first one open,
the first one hit.

If an incident occurs on campus, stu-
dents can use the emergency poles scat-
tered throughout campus, a revamped
version of the initial emergency alert sys—
tem UK installed ei ht years ago.

VVith the push ofg a button, a strobe is
activated so “UKPD can locate you
quicker,” Bastin said.

Average response time: two minutes.

Another asset in crime prevention is

the Safecats escort service, run by Air
Force ROTC students, which Bastin said
is grossly underused.
Also, last sprin , student govern—
ment presidentiaF candidate Kyle
Thompson com lained about the
thousands of dol ars shelled out for

“It’s an excellent service," Bastin said.
“Students just don’t take advantage of it.
New students are not aware of the fact
that things are going to happen to them.”

So to increase awareness, Bastin and
other UK officers will discuss concerns
in person and over the phone with par-
ents this summer as incoming freshman
flock to campus.

Most of the questions, Bastin said,
deal with sexual assaults and drinking,
which are prohibited on UK’s campus
and subject to prosecution and expulsion.

The possibility for theft, burglary or
altercation exists, but computer science
so homore Travis Stanfield said UK is
re atively safe.

“There doesn't seem to be a whole lot
of unrest,” he said. “Make sure you know
where your car is. As far as getting into
altercations, that pretty much depends
on the individual."

anything, but normally things like

too bad. But the

We bonded — for about two
hours -— waiting to get to the

moving-in coordinators decided

they had to spend extended peri—

e bad part about the size of
this place is you can easily get lost in

But the good part about UK is
you‘re never alone. There are

You can get involved. You can

money is
a tricky


By Mat Herron

Campus Editor

College students want to
accomplish many things through-
out their four — or five, or six —
years in school.

Debt does not fall under that

Still, credit card companies
flood students with applications;
banks promise enticing deals and
sometimes, students can stand
btrt not deliver.

Thom Payne said debit and
Automated Teller Machine
(ATM) cards play havoc because
students overuse them and, con-
sequently, end up with overdraft

“Keep organized,“ said Payne,
a marketing assistant at the UK
Federal Credit Union, who will
lead a cash management and
credit seminar titled “You and
Your Money" for incoming fresh-
man at advising conferences this

“It’s easy to stick that receipt in
your pocket and forget about it,”
he said. “Always ask your bank or
credit union, because they're
there to hel you.”

The credit union operates 24
ATM machines around
Lexington, including one outside
the Student Center.

Another machine, Payne said,
will be constructed at either
Lexington Community College
or around Commonwealth

If they had to choose between
credit cards or checking and sav-
ings accounts, students said they
prefer the latter.

With savings and checking
accounts, “you don’t have to
worry about how much more
you’re gonna owe; it’s what you
spend,” said Jennifer Kremer, an
accounting sophomore.

Kremer a plied for a Visa
credit card but later decided
against it because of the 2] r-
cent interest rate and advice om
friends, she said.

“(My boyfriend) told me not
to take a credit card,” Kremer
said. “Because you just take
advantage of the convenience.”

Some students carry several
credit cards with them, and either
out of convenience or impulsive

Federal Credit Union, said students need to stay organized and keep track
of everything they spend to avoid going into debt.

buying, rack up huge debts that
could take years to pay off, she

When appl 'n for a credit or
debit card at the EJKFCU, Payne
said all applicants must list each
debt and its amount. Students can
go to the branch in 249 Student
Center or the union's main office
at the corner of Export and
Virginia avenues.

At least when you pay debts to
the union, all your hard spent
money doesn’t go directly to fed-
eral government.

All the money collected is
returned to customers “in the
form of lower rates when (stu-
dents) borrow,” Payne said.

The bank requires a minimum
deposit of $25 to start a savings
account and a $5 one-time mem-
bership fee, but no dc it is
needed to start a c ccking

If you have enough money in
the savin account to cover the
charge, e overdraft: on check-

ing accounts are covered.


Some banks in Kentucky,
specifically National City, plan to
move toward “do—it-yourself”
banking, said Bill Marcum,
branch manager of National
City’s Chevy Chase Road loca-

None of the National City
branches in Lexington have start—
ed this banking yet, but five
branches in Louisville and others
in Columbus, Ohio, have.

This do-it-yourself method
meets students’ needs perfectly,
Marcum said.

It allows on-the-go, busy stu-
dents access to their accounts and
account records over the phone
and Internet.

“Students are the ideal mar-
ket for this concept," he said.

As for managing dollars, inte-
grated strategic communications
so homorc Sarah Miller said,
“ akc sure u know how much

money you ave, and keep good
records of where you are with

your money.”

never left.
