"Georgetown is a relatively safe school. However, we are an open campus so things can definitely happen that we may not expect. Within the first 6 months of my time here, we had the armed robbery suspect that my team had to apprehend. One of the Georgetown students left the business school and was on his way to the Leavey center to get some coffee when he was approached by 2 individuals. The student was held at gunpoint and the individuals demanded credit cards, money, phone, everything... I was the initial officer that took the report. We sent out the Hoya alert email to all students.
"I believe that God will always put you where you need to be. 12 years ago, my father got killed in a crosswalk.. he was just a pedestrian. ...I do this job for [my father]… this is where I need to be – keeping everybody safe. And just knowing that gives me more energy and a brighter smile."
"Throughout the years that I've worked here, I've noticed that time management and procrastination are two things that a lot of students struggle with. They push off the work, then they get backed up, then they rush to finish it, but by then it becomes a crisis.. I've seen students stay up all night and get depressed because of the workload. Working as a guard in the library, I’ve seen it right in front of my eyes... Personally, I also need to sleep more.. I need more “me” time. Sometimes I cut myself off from everyone else, turn off the phone and just pray & meditate.
