There was a service organization on campus, Circle K, that I had been involved with before getting involved in anything in student government, 00:00:00.000 - 00:00:08.357
and that initiative I think may have been started in part by them. They did a survey on campus and things of that nature identifying, with their members, 00:00:08.357 - 00:00:19.902
areas that they thought were too dark, and then that was carried forward into Residence Life again. 00:00:19.902 - 00:00:25.381
But, yeah, that is a serious issue, obviously, and I'm sure it is still today as well. 00:00:25.381 - 00:00:35.081
You don't think about it generally until-because the campus seems so safe. Even if the thing had been dark and people were using flashlights, 00:00:35.081 - 00:00:44.719
when you're in a university environment everything just-. You take safety for granted 00:00:44.719 - 00:00:51.436
and that incident sort of put more focus on it, so that was something that we carried forward. 00:00:51.436 - 00:00:57.977
It was a natural thing I think for student government to pick up and advocate. 00:00:57.977 - 00:01:02.221
