4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on my campus. There are rarely any nerve-provoking events that take place and when they do immediate action is always taken. There are times when I leave my dorm room unlocked during the day because I do not worry about my belongings being taken.

Health & Safety: At Bay Path the campus security are always there to help. You can see them out on the campus ground everyday. They make sure to watch out for cars and also alert students if there is an abnormal activity going on. The campus security do check on vehicles and inside campus to make sure everything is okay and students are well.There are phones in each building with the number to call our campus police as well as the city police. I feel very comfortable on campus as of right now it is a mostly all female college. It is nice to have males around in case we need help or need to be defended. They are there for security and help with anything you need even if it is just a little car trouble. Since we do get lots of snow during the winter months they are very good with cleaning the snowing and directing students on where to park. Security is very good at Bay Path I feel so safe there.

5 College Junior

Bay Path College is a very safe campus at any time of day. The only unsafe area of campus may be near the main highway that runs by it, Route 5, and only because of the amount of traffic on that road. There are some rare crimes, such as cars being broken into, but the Public Safety officers take care of every report and complaint to the best of their ability. They are easy to approach and willing to help with any problem.

The health services employees are the same way. They are kind and easy to speak with about a student's medical problems. However, the overall opinion of the students toward the health services is that they are of mediocre quality and not very convenient. This may be because it is a small health office with limited personnel. The best thing about health services is really their overall willingness to do whatever they can to help students with their needs.
