2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: If you are not with a group of people stay indoors after 8. There have been several incidents on my campus were people off the street enter my campus with a gun or knife. There have been break ins to student vehicles, abductions and drop offs of abduction victims at the school. There are several blue lights throughout campus that, if pushed, alert the campus security. However, there have been instances where the security takes well over 10 minutes to arrive. The campus is very small and has roads apart from the city of Albany, so there is no reason for the time delay.As far as the health centers availability to students you would be better off going to an emergency room. A student that has insurance coverage outside of the school can only visit the health center at certain times.

Health & Safety: The school has a high security. It is safe to be on campus. Every officer is alert and ready to go. Any threats to the students will be addressed through email. For example, there was a suspicious man with a gun walking near the campus. All the classes were locked in and students were not allowed to leave. Once the PSO (public safety officers) found the individual, students were allowed to leave classes.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: At Albany College of Pharmacy violence and crime is low. It is located in an area of low crime and campus security is always available.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: You have to remember that the campus is in the middle of Albany. It's okay to walk alone on campus during the day, but at night on campus and anytime of the day off campus you don't want to walk around alone.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: Its not really unsafe during the day but is a concern at night since it is an open campus. Plus the buildings are really spread out and one should be aware of their surroundings.
