4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus police are great. They do their job well. The campus is not in chaos. People seem to feel safe on campus especially at night.

The health center is not that great.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The safety is good, I guess. The campus police are always present. The health isn't always present, however, the center isn't even open weekends.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Health services sucks. They told my friend that she had strep & it wasn't contagious. They are DEAD wrong. Another time they forgot to call my friend back with her results.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The safety here is pretty good. I never feel uncomfortable because campus police is always around- whether it be biking on the campus or driving on campus in the campus police cars. All visitors have to sign in and have a guest pass, which is not always followed but it is an important rule.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I took a really nice RAD (rape aggression defense) class sponsored by campus police. I always see officers out and making sure things are going smoothly. People usually don't steal your things, but I also lived in honors housing. I was a little upset by all the underage drinking and how campus police never seemed to notice a lot of it.
