The University of Great Falls (UGF) in Montana has enhanced security following a shooting near a university housing complex. UGF has moved all students out of the apartment where the shooting took place. They have also brought on additional security guards and increased patrols in the area. They were assessing the situation before they allow the students to move back in. A spokeswoman from the University of Great Falls says, “With different things that have happened nationwide, we’ve done what we can to prepare ourselves. Our student safety is very important to us. We just want to be vigilant in what we do and how we can help them and keep them safe.” UGF does not have an emergency text message alert system but officials say the Emergency Task Force on campus is always looking for ways to improve safety measures.
