  • Title: Dorm security ineffective | The Echo | ucaecho.net :: Serving the UCA community since 1909
    Descriptive info: Dorm security ineffective.. Campus housing safety procedures fail to protect when residents are unaware of policies.. Echo Staff.. In April, students from Journalism Lecturer David Keith s in-depth reporting class surveyed dorm security on campus.. A wire hanger is used to gain access to the back left exterior door of New Hall without an escort or a swipe card.. | PHOTO BY DANIEL BECKER.. One student was shown a “trick” to gain access to New Hall without assistance: the keyhole to the right back access door was missing and could be easily opened with a wire hanger or other slender object.. The journalism student tested the theory with a wire hanger and opened the door in seconds.. Senior Jennifer Hicks, New Hall resident, said someone showed her the trick when she was a freshman four years ago and it worked ever since.. As of Aug.. 26, the dorm could still be accessed by sticking a wire hanger through the missing keyhole.. Upon further investigation, reporters found Denney Hall could be accessed through a partially uncovered keyhole that could also be opened with a wire hanger and the front door leading to the lobby could be pulled open without using a swipe card.. UCA’s housing department assures that its dorm security policy measures are effective and meet the needs of students in all residence halls on campus.. Stephanie McBrayer, housing director, said exterior doors are locked 24/7 with guests being escorted in the dorms by residents.. When it comes to enforcing the policy, McBrayer said resident assistants and residents are responsible for following procedure.. “This is your community; this is how you keep each other safe.. You don’t prop doors or let people piggy back in,” McBrayer said.. Freshman Frank Benton, an 18-year-old nonresident of State Hall, let one of the journalism students into the residence hall “because I heard someone banging” on the door.. He said he walked out of his Academic Writing and Research class and opened the door for the student when he heard the student banging on the door.. He said he was unaware of the policy against letting other students into the dorms.. “I’m in class right now, so I thought you needed in for class,” Benton said.. State Hall resident freshman Mariah Henderson, 19, also let the student in the dorm.. She said she let the student into the dorm because she thought the student had class in State Hall.. “I was just being polite,” she said.. “I thought you had class.. ”.. Henderson said several students have classes in State Hall but don’t have swipe card access to the residence hall, so they rely on other students to let them in the building.. Assistant Vice President of Housing and Contract Services Rick McCollum said a few security updates were installed over summer, including peepholes to the individual doors at Bear Hall to increase dorm security.. Emergency call boxes were installed at Bear Village and along the north side of Torreyson Street by the Torreyson and Erbach apartments.. Sophomore Jordan Reeves, Carmichael Hall RA, said all RAs and resident coordinators are responsible for making sure the rules are followed.. “Whoever is on duty will monitor the dorm,” she said.. “However, even if an RA is not on duty, they are still authorized to confront activity.. Reeves said all guests in residential halls must have a resident escort at all times.. She said if rules are broken, the RA writes up the incident and, depending on the severity of the infraction, the student could face disciplinary action.. “Residents on the inside are strongly advised not to let anyone in,” she said.. She said that while she may not have let anyone in because it’s “very dangerous,” she has witnessed several students letting people into the building.. “This is mainly because Carmichael has sorority chapter rooms and all the sorority girls do not have access cards,” she said.. Reeves said she has never done a safety program to go over the rules, but she plans to do one in the future.. “That is a great idea.. I will definitely plan one for the residents” in the fall, she said.. Senior Zach Barnes, Bernard Hall RA, said Bernard has a problem with people being in the dorms who aren’t supposed to be.. He said the RAs have discussed the issue, including why it’s a problem and possible solutions, at floor meetings at the start of each semester.. He said rule enforcement starts with the RAs.. “We are there to monitor our floor and make sure everything is going well for the residents,” he said.. “We are seen as rule enforcers, but we do more than that.. Barnes said a way to recognize people who aren’t supposed to be in the hall is by being familiar with who lives there.. “As an RA, we should know just about everyone in the hall and be able to recognize if there is an unauthorized person  ...   what we tell them and it’s entirely their responsibility as to whether or not they read their handbooks.. To ensure the effectiveness of security measures in all residence halls, card access is monitored through periodic staff checks in buildings and security cameras in lobby areas.. There are no major differences in how curfew is regulated based on gender, McBrayer said.. Guests are permitted between 10 a.. and 2 a.. and each residence hall can develop its own policy for more restrictive hours or tougher entrance procedures.. She said there is no curfew for when residents have to be back in the building.. McBrayer said it is important for residents to be informed about the policy to be aware of the reasoning behind it and to prevent criminal activity.. Seventy security cameras are installed in 11 residence halls: eight in Arkansas Hall, six in Baridon Hall, 10 in Bear Hall, six in Bernard Hall residence areas, six in Carmichael Hall, seven in Conway Hall, four in Farris Hall, six in Hughes Hall, seven in New Hall, four in Short Hall and six in State Hall.. The security cameras monitor the activities of residents in each public space within the residence halls.. Bruick said some residence halls have front- and rear- entrance cameras, including Bear Hall and Farris Hall.. Peepholes are installed on individual room doors.. McBrayer said the housing department tries to stay ahead of trends in security and constantly evaluates security measures.. She said there are no plans to install additional cameras in residence halls.. “When things occur, we are able to go back and check footage,” she said.. “Anytime you’re able to address a student, your learning usually happens.. The dorm security policy is reviewed annually through the student handbook and during times of construction.. “Whenever we do new construction or go into a building and make improvements, we look at the building as a whole and what it might need,” Bruick said.. McBrayer said housing evaluates visitation policies and overnight procedures at least once a year.. Housing department key audits are used to confirm that all residence-hall keys are accounted for.. Temporary ID cards are made in the event of security concerns.. UCAPD is responsible for policing dorms.. UCAPD Project Manager Arch Jones said offenders may receive a criminal trespass citation based on their behavior and the officer’s discretion.. He said these citations are rare.. He said UCAPD monitors dorm with random walkthroughs and by communicating with the housing department.. Custodians have strict guidelines about allowing people into buildings they are cleaning.. Theresa White and Angela Strain are institutional services supervisors at UCA, which means they schedule who cleans what building and when.. Strain said she and White take shifts for workers almost every day, because at least one person cannot make it to work.. “[The custodians] are there Monday through Friday and we make walkthroughs when they are done,” she said.. “Nobody works in the dorms on the weekends,” she said.. “Once a month, we work 8-10 [a.. ] on Bear Facts Day to tidy up floors.. White said the jobs the custodians do vary depending on the building’s features.. When it comes to actual security of the buildings, Strain said housing does not require the Physical Plant or custodians to give notice of violations, including residents letting other students in the dorms.. “[The custodians] recognize students who are supposed to be in there.. They don’t let people in,” she said.. She said she often overlooks “petty” issues.. “If we reported guys coming out of girls’ dorms every time, they would tell us to stop,” she said.. “Doors not working or people acting [suspiciously] is immediately reported.. She said when they report a situation, a series of decisions is made.. “[The custodians] call us and we make a decision,” she said.. “Usually, we would go ourselves, but if it’s bad enough we would call UCAPD..

  • Title: Fraternity celebrates return to campus with Ying Yang twins concert; 1,300 attend | The Echo | ucaecho.net :: Serving the UCA community since 1909
    Descriptive info: Tyler Riley.. About 1,300 people attended the Ying Yang Twins concert Friday, Aug.. The Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity hosted the event.. The group hopes to change its image after a 2011 incident, which forced the organization to leave campus for a year.. | PHOTO BY JARED HOLT.. The line quickly ran out the door and down the sidewalk as hundreds of UCA students waited, tickets in hand, to be admitted.. Even after the show began, people continued to trickle in for about an hour.. “[The concert was] all about impressions and change,” Brent Ashcraft, the fraternity’s alumni adviser, said.. “And to let you know that we’re back and back in a good way.. Because we haven’t always had the greatest track record.. In 2011, the fraternity was removed from campus after several members broke into an apartment and assaulted a Sigma Phi Epsilon member.. As a result, Sigma Tau Gamma lost 37 members and only 13 were allowed to remain out of the original 50 members.. “We had some members make some bad choices, and we got kicked off campus for a year,” Ashcraft said.. He said the organization worked its “tail off” to revive the fraternity from its previous image.. “We had a  ...   this campus.. Junior Hunter Morris said, “Man, that’s the biggest concert I’ve been to this year.. The fraternity chose the Ying Yang Twins and Gorilla Zoe for its “outstanding” performance track record of playing college shows, Ashcraft said.. He added the concert pre-sold about 1,000 tickets.. Ashcraft said it took several months to plan the event, and that they did not have their artist “locked up until about right at four weeks ago.. Planning included heavy security for the concert.. Cops checked attendees’s bags at the entrance and at every path leading to the backstage area.. A fraternity brother was placed at every fire alarm, a measure to ensure no one would pull a fire alarm to sabotage the event.. “There was a lot of on-the-spot hard work,” he said.. “But we have some great alumni here that do this for a living.. The Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity funded the concert through ticket sales, alumni sponsorship and about two-weeks worth of yard sales, Ashcraft said.. The Student Government Association also helped fund the event, he said.. “[SGA] gave us a significant portion of it,” Ashcraft said.. “And these guys have worked their tails off selling tickets and getting sponsorships to pay for the rest..
