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.
