WARNING SIGNS FOR POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS STUDENTS:
1. Any direct statement about the intention to harm oneself or other members of the community.
2. “Hints” that the individual intends to harm themselves or other members of the community. For example, “I might not be around after this weekend;” “It would be a good idea for you to stay out of the cafeteria tomorrow;” “People might get hurt, if they’re not careful;” “I’d think twice about failing me in this class if I were you.”
3. Extreme difficulty adjusting to college life; for example, the student is isolated, depressed, and/or very angry, with peers or adults in the community.
4. A pattern of escalating hostility or resentment in either verbal or written communications from a student.
5. Significant changes in behavior, appearance, habits, mood or activities.
6. Statements from individuals about access to fire arms and suggestions that they may be bringing them to the campus or may already have them on campus.
7. Behaviors that indicate that the individual is settling his or her affairs, which may include telling people goodbye, giving possessions away, and/or making statements about what they would like to have done should something happen to them.
8. Fascination with violence, including video games, rock music, and violent “role models”.
9. Your own “gut feeling” that someone that you know intends to harm themselves or others.
