ASHLAND, Ore. -- A student at SOU in Ashland woke up Sunday to find her car had been vandalized. A concrete block had been used to smash her front windshield.

Campus security says there were no security cameras focused on that location. The incident has caused some students to talk about their own safety and security.

They say they're surprised to learn that there were no cameras watching the parking lot. It's located right next to the victim's dorm and near a main campus quad off of Ashland Street.

Jenni Portwood explained how she though cameras were monitoring the area.

I definitely thought there was," said Portwood. "I mean you're paying so much to go to school here. You figure they have cameras to protect your stuff. So it was a surprise to me there wasn't."

SOU Campus Security said the investigation is ongoing. They also say they don't believe the victim was targeted
