On a cold and windy night, a wee lass was struggling against the quick winds.
The night time sky above her let her know she had spent most of her night dwelling in the Student Center in preparation for an upcoming exam. Lugging a load of course work on her back, she trembled with the thought of treading to her Residence Hall. Suddenly, like a light shining down from the sky, she remembered S.E.E.U.S. and their vibrant yellow coats.
She takes her phone and places a call to S.E.E.U.S. The dispatchers on the other end of the line let her know that a van will be able to pick her up at the Student Center lot in a few minutes. Overcome with joy that she won’t have to face a daunting walk back to her Residence Hall by herself, she quickly says her thank you’s and hangs up the phone.
Like a knight in shining armor, she glazes as the S.E.E.U.S van smoothly comes to a stop in front of her. She hops in the S.E.E.U.S van and within a few minutes, she’s home. SALVATION!
S.E.E.U.S stands for Student Eyes and Ears for University Safety. The purpose of S.E.E.U.S is to escort students from one destination on campus to another (on campus only). There are two escorts, usually one male and one female in bright yellow coats with IDs hanging from their neck. The number to contact S.E.E.U.S is (734) 487-3387 or (734) 48-SEEUS. Niffy, eh?
You could either call in for S.E.E.U.S or approach one of the employees. As their procedure calls, they will ask for your name and E-Number. What’s better than walking?! NOT WALKING!
Not only is it a walking escort service, but also there is a mobile service that transports students in a soccer mom like mini-van. A service like this is an incredible help when carrying bags of groceries. The hours of operation can be found on http://www.emich.edu/publicsafety/seeus.htm.
So, if there comes a night when you would like someone escorting you to your destination, maybe would like a ride back to your Res Hall, or want some casual, laid-back chit chat while walking, give S.E.E.U.S a call.
