needs to telephone a
student in the event of an emergency, that person should call the
Director of Public Safety at Drew University, at (973)
408-4444 to get numbers and any additional information. The
who work at the children's homes ask us to ask people not to telephone
for non-emergency reasons--the students may not always be easy to
locate and the staff are very busy trying to take care of so many
ASSUME THAT NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS.
THERE ARE ANY PROBLEMS, PUBLIC SAFETY HAS CONTACT NUMBERS AND WILL BE
IN TOUCH WITH FAMILY MEMBERS.
