With Campus Safety officers constantly roaming Albion's well-lit campus, it is rare that a student feels unsafe. There have been a few incidents of violence and crime in the past, but as long as you care about and are aware of your safety, you shouldn't have a problem. Campus Safety officers are more than happy to accompany students home at any time when they may feel unsafe. It is also a good idea to travel in groups, whether it be from a frat party or a late-night study session. You just need to be careful.
There have been some complaints in the past few years about women's health issues and the sexual assault policy on campus. Health Services is generally good about women's health and offers birth control and gynecological services, but they do not offer any form of emergency contraception on campus. Albion's sexual assault policy is "no tolerance," and while some students feel punishments should be harsher for offenders, the College does make an effort to aid sexual assault victims. The Anna Howard Shaw Women's Center offers free counseling and a free sexual assault services hotline for all students in need.
