OSHKOSH - As President of the United Students in Residence Halls at UW-Oshkosh Michelle Cecil told FOX 11 she has her finger on the pulse of campus life and right now she told us, students are worried.
"Recently some of the safety issues that have come up have hit so close to students that live in the halls. We've had a lot of questions about safety and the programs that are available," said Cecil.
University Police Chief Joseph LeMire explained three attempted assaults on college students in the past month have lead to those concerns.
He told FOX 11 since then, university police and the school's women's center decided to address students with a safety panel.
"That is encouraging to me that no one got hurt and since then we haven't had one. This really highlights the things we need students to do to keep themselves safe," LeMire explained.
LeMire highlighted examples like walking in groups at night, walking in well-lit areas and always carrying a charged cell phone.
He also informed FOX 11 the university and Oshkosh Police are still working to find whomever committed the attacks.
"We've been sharing informaiton over the last few weeks and we'll continue to do so," said LeMire.
Director of the Women's Center M. Geneva Murray told us the panel is also meant to highlight safety resources at the school.
"There are a lot of things available to them and we're constantly going to be responding to their concerns and trying to make sure that we give everyone the best experience they possibly can have at UW-Oshkosh," Murray explained.
Some of those resources include safe walks, where community service officers walk with student and staff at night. There are also TitanAlerts, text messages sent regarding safety concerns on campus.
Cecil told us it's important for students like herself to know about these resources and use them
"I myself have used the safewalk before because walking alone at night can be kind of scary," Cecil said.
And she's not along, campus authorities told FOX 11 all of last school year, 600 safe walks were used. In the first three weeks of this school year, 200 have already been used.
