3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Have security that roam around

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: our campus has a conveniently located wellness center where all students are able to go if they feel ill. Security is always out driving around, especially at night.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel safe at Bethany. The Health services are excellent, however, they do not meet the needs of the students in regards to the hours they are actually open and available. You have to miss class to go and they are not open on weekends. If there were one thing I would like to see changed, it would be the health office open to meet the students needs not the schedule of those employed by the office. We are paying for a service in which most can not use, which forces us to go all the way to Wheeling to an Urgent Care.

Health & Safety: The wellness center on campus is an absolutel joke. Unless you need something small like aspirin or some over the counter medicine your better off going to the hospital. As far as security goes, this is the worst company I have ever seen. They do nothing for the students, and usually just ride around campus or sit around int he cafeteria. When they finally do show up, normally about an hour has passed. In fact since last semester they have had 5 accidents including t-boning a students car and then driving off.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe while at BC. The only real crime that occurs on campus is theft. BC does have security force that act like they are actual cops when there not. They are very strict on parking it's pretty common to see at least one car booted per day if not more and several parking tickets. Parking fines are between 25 and I think 150 dollars.
