WKU police hold introductory program for freshmen men

BOWLING GREEN. Ky. – WKU police is working with new college students this week at M.A.S.T.E.R. Plan.

Thursday was the first day of content sessions for WKU M.A.S.T.E.R.  Plan.

Officer Tim Gray held a training session for 31 first-year male students discussing their purpose, personal safety, decision making, stress management and understanding the various roles of the campus police.

Students attending M.A.S.T.E.R. Plan were introduced to each other and encouraged to sit near someone they didn’t know.

The session is occurring during WKU’s M.A.S.T.E.R. Plan week where freshman come to school a week before classes begin to learn about the school, make friends and familiarize themselves with campus.

“Over the course of the next few days we’re just really going to dive into it, give them the opportunity to assess their time here, what they are looking to get from their time here at WKU. We’ll talk about campus safety in all different formats. We’re going to look at it from a standpoint of ‘If I’m a college student, what are some things I can do to keep myself safe.’” said Gray said.

This was an opportunity for WKU police to get to know students and help get students aware of university protocol and how to get information.
