On Tuesday, April 12, Dean of Students Laura Bayless confirmed that former Director of Public Safety Christopher Santiago is no longer employed with St. Mary’s College. Santiago, who formerly served as the Assistant Director of Campus Safety for Keene State College in New Hampshire, began his work as Director of Public Safety on Sept. 7, 2010, making his tenure just over seven months long.
The sheriff’s office has visited campus multiple times this semester. The police were called on at least three separate occasions.
As of Friday, September 18, 62 cars had been towed from the College campus because of parking violations. Though the number is higher than previous years, public safety says that the rules haven’t changed.
There’s a new face around campus, and it’s not just the lonely, lost First-years. The new Director of Public Safety, Chief Christopher Santiago, arrived on campus just over two weeks ago, on Sept. 7, and already has a few projects in the works and big ideas for the St. Mary’s community.
