A few months ago, I joined SafeWalk to meet new people while making a quick buck or two for staying up late, but since the reports of armed robberies on and near campus, I have newfound respect for my job.
I didn’t know much about SafeWalk before I started working for them, and I’ve found that a lot of people don’t know either. Almost all of the people I have walked have asked about the job, so here are some of the most popular questions I get:
So how long are you guys out here?
We hang out in front of Davis Library and the UL from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. I’m still trying to master handling the 2 a.m. slump, but when there’s a lot of walks, it’s not so bad. It keeps your brain occupied and your blood pumping.
How far do you walk?
