Some students told WAFF 48's Leah Jordan they fear walking alone, and some said they will now be extra cautious of their surroundings. 

"It's always been a risk but now it's more of a reality because it's right in front of us," student Danielle Hansell said. 

"It is a terrifying thing for ladies because it happens all the time. It's misreported and it doesn't get reported," student Jordan Own added. 

WAFF 48 asked university officials about additional security measures they will take following these incidents but they did not get back to us.

Police are looking for a silver or gray colored crown Victoria or grand marquis with no tag and no hubcaps. 

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to call campus police at (256) 372-5555.
