Of course, you know, you kind of get student body president at NC State and you're going to kind of meet the Carolina president, the Duke president, the Wake Forest president and the Appalachian president. 00:00:00.000 - 00:00:09.721
You get to know them just because you just do. 00:00:09.721 - 00:00:11.956
So there had been some women students that had been molested at Carolina around the arboretum or something like that 00:00:11.956 - 00:00:22.413
that had gone on and we had talked about that. 00:00:22.413 - 00:00:25.436
So I'd come up with the idea and I said what we really need to do is have some kind of way where somebody walking on a campus if something happens there's a telephone pole or something close by that they can immediately go to. 00:00:25.436 - 00:00:40.068
Fast forwarding today you've got all the blue lights with the phones on the campus. That was started during that time as a result of that incident 00:00:40.068 - 00:00:48.436
so that's really kind of neat to see where the security of the campuses, especially as some of that's probably been called into question more and more over time, 00:00:48.436 - 00:01:00.381
but we had that system in place then and I think it's probably been a very effective system. 00:01:00.381 - 00:01:07.752
So that was one of the things that I felt like was a really good thing that was kind of a holdover from that period. 00:01:07.752 - 00:01:15.027
