Safety is getting the spotlight on the Mizzou campus this week.
Organizers are hosting a â??Safe Mizzou 2013â?? event.
The week-long educational program kicked off today with a personal safety fair at Mizzouâ??s student center.
Thousands of students got free pizza, T-shirts and first aid kits in an effort to create safety awareness.
Organizers said information and tools at their safety fair help Mizzou students take responsibility for their personal safety.
MU student Pebble Smith said, â??Weâ??re giving out first aid kits that have band aids and aspirin. Itâ??s great. Theyâ??re loving it. Iâ??m happy.â??
Highlights later this week include the burning a simulated dorm room on Wednesday morning and a safety scavenger hunt on Friday night.
