Crimes of opportunity have swept across college campuses, an open door, an unlocked window, a dorm party with unfamiliar guests. Incoming freshman are arriving at school with over $3000 worth of electronics and other valuables and theft is on the rise. Students are turning to rugged steel footlockers for security.

No longer are footlockers just an extra coffee table, night stand or bench. They are now secure safes for college dorm students. According to Ed Holand, Sales Director at C&N Footlockers Inc., college students are arriving at school with Lap tops, MP3 players, palm pilots, DVD/CD players, cell phones, not to mention jewelry, medicine and cash and are getting ripped off.

"Dorms can be very open to the public. People come in and out all day long especially on the weekend, it’s just too easy to snatch a $1500 lap top or a $400 digital camera." With insurance costs averaging over $90.00 per year for just one laptop, students and their parents are turning back to steel footlockers just like they had 25 years ago.

C&N Manufacturing Inc., a steel footlocker manufacturer, has been awarded licenses to emblazon their steel footlockers with the school colors and logos. Texas A&M University and the University of Wisconsin will be the first to have their colors and logos available, other schools to follow.
