As the need for safety increases throughout college campuses nationwide, the SGA Office of Campus Security has been working to ensure that The Florida State University is among the frontrunners in paving the way for comprehensive and outstanding campus safety programming. We would like to emphasize the importance of our zero tolerance policy for drunk driving. Florida State University Parking and Transportation in conjunction with the Student Government Association developed an initiative in the summer of 2006 dubbed the "Night Nole". The Night Nole is a bus service that operates from 10:00pm to 3:00am, Tuesday through Saturday. The route begins in Heritage Grove and makes stops along the route stretching from Appleyard to Stadium Drive, all the way back through Tennessee Street and services over 32 apartment complexes. This free service enables students to enjoy late night venues without having to drive their vehicles.
Another free service for those worried about walking alone on campus at night, the Student Alert Force Escort (S.A.F.E.) Connection runs from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m., seven days a week. This service will provide transportation to and from on campus, the Alumni Village, Southgate, the FSU Foundation, the Southern Scholarship House and Greek houses not in Heritage Grove. The number is easy: 644-SAFE (7233).
