Campus SafetyVice President and Chief Information Officer Steve Hall announced in a campus-wide email Monday that the college will be holding a Knox Guardian Launch Party. The event will be held on Thursday, Nov. 13 at 4 p.m. in the Taylor Lounge.

Students are encouraged to bring their smartphones to learn about and download the new app and ask questions. Director of Campus Safety John Schlaf will be in attendance to assist students, as will ITS and help desk staff. Pizza and prizes will be available for students who download the app.
