New classroom door locks enhance safety on campus

Classroom door with new lock

OSU-Tulsa's classroom doors received a safety upgrade over the winter holiday break with new hardware that makes it easier to lock and unlock the doors from inside. The new bolts twist counter-clockwise to engage, and the doors can be opened from within by turning the door handle.

These new locks replace the previous locking system, which was activated by pushing a button on the inside of the door while it was open. The more simple and recognizable design enables classroom occupants to lock the door while it is closed, then open with one movement from the inside.

Open, permitless carry law doesn’t change OSU policy

Handguns and other weapons prohibited on campus

A new handgun law is set to go into effect Nov. 1, but it will not change the rules at Oklahoma State University-Tulsa that prohibit guns from being carried on campus. This applies to every OSU campus across the state. Weapons can be locked in a vehicle on campus but not carried on campus.

Orange Pride: Pam Jackson

It’s not really a surprise that Pam Jackson ended up working in a police department.

Her dad, now retired, was a state trooper. Her husband, recently promoted to commander, is a police officer with the Jenks Police Department.

“I guess you could say I come from a police family,” she said. “I kind of gravitated toward it.”
