WEST LAFAYETTE, IN (WTAQ) - The murder of a Wisconsin student at Purdue University could end up making other people safer on that western Indiana campus.  

A committee reviewed the school's security measures, after 21-year-old Andrew Boldt of West Bend was shot and killed in January while serving as a teaching assistant during a class session.  

As a result of Boldt's death, the committee recommends that more students receive Purdue's emergency text messages. Students must now actively choose to accept those texts, but the committee says they should automatically get them unless they opt out.  

Also, the panel said many people raised concerns about classrooms not having locks on their doors.

The report said it would cost about $500 each to add locks to Purdue's 41,200 doors in the various classroom buildings.

A trial is still pending for a Purdue student charged with killing Boldt.
