New York Colleges Look At Safety In Wake Of Tragic Fire
The Journal News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When Michele Sampson learned of the fire in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., that claimed the lives of three Marist College students, she thought, "That's my worst nightmare." Sampson runs the office of Off-Campus Housing at Iona College, in New Rochelle, N.Y. She took to her Twitter account, mentioned the Marist fire and then typed, "FREE smoke detector batteries are always available at Off-Campus Housing." The Lower Hudson Valley is home to more than a half-dozen colleges, many of which are packed into tight, urban settings. Colleges in Rockland and Westchester counties address fire danger in a variety of ways, with some actively engaging students who live off campus and others barely keeping track of their students who don't live in dormitories.

The president conveyed a brief but forceful message to the nation's colleges and universities: "You're on notice.
