In the News: Ohio State offers new campus safety app

Ohio State's Department of Public Safety is now offering a new free safety app for students, faculty and staff.

The point of the Rave Guardian app is to protect students, faculty and staff with quicker alerts and safety notices. And users of the app can pick friends or family as a virtual guardian to follow them via GPS-tracking as they travel around campus.
