3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: i see cops so i feel safe?

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never used the student health center at my college.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe on campus, just off.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus always feels safe, public safety is always available to help you if you need it, and campus crime is virtually nonexistent.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is always a security guard walking around campus and if you need anything from them, they are more than willing to help. Also, if you need to be picked up from the Decatur MARTA station when it's dark out, they will come pick you up.

Health and safety services are amazing at Agnes. The entire campus is secure, and almost every student feels safe enough to walk outside at night. The campus police are extremely friendly, and are a constant presence around campus. There are get-togethers called "Meet the HEAT," where Agnes students can speak with Public Safety and learn self-defense techniques. The campus itself is small and safe. The safest places are the dorms as well as the library. However, the Decatur area isn't safe in some places, such as around MARTA and some of the neighborhoods. These areas are typically safest during the day or when students travel in large groups.

The wellness center is located on campus, and is easily accessible to everyone. The wellness center offers a wide variety of services that include counseling, gynecology appointments, chiropractic care, and access to a nutritionist. Appointments are almost always available, but students must conform to the wellness center as opposed to the wellness center conforming to students. This system of appointments can be tricky and frustrating at times. If you remember to make an appointment as soon as possible, you will be seen as soon as possible. The wellness center staff seeks to have a comfortable relationship with students, and it's always willing to listen or point students in the right direction in the event of an emergency. Both Public Safety and the wellness center have phone numbers in the event of a medical or psychological emergency.

Did You Know?
  • Agnes's Public Safety officers are certified through Georgia's Peace Officers Standards and Training Council. This certification gives Agnes's Public Safety officers jurisdiction county- and state-wide.
  • Need a jump? Lock your keys in the car? Are you a Scottie? Public Safety can help! The Department of Public Safety offers jump starts and door unlocking services to all Scotties.
  • Any Scottie who finds herself stranded off campus can call a cab and have the cab bring her to the Department of Public Safety. Public Safety pays the fare, but there's a catch: Students should repay the fare within two weeks. Make sure you pay up. The money you repay keeps the fund alive, so Public Safety can keep helping Scotties in need!
