BLOOMINGTON — The parents of an Indiana University student missing for more than a year hope that some suggestions for improved campus safety become reality.The parents of Lauren Spierer attended freshman honors classes Thursday discussing ideas for The Lauren Project aimed at increasing awareness of potential dangers that students face. The 20-year-old Spierer from Greenburgh, N.Y., was last seen in June 2011 after a night of partying with friends in downtown Bloomington.

The Herald-Times reports suggestions from the classes included a revamped night shuttle service and a campaign encouraging all students to have a friend with them whenever out at night.

Charlene Spierer tells WTHR-TV that she wants to see something positive result from the tragedy of her daughter's disappearance.
