3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: So far for it being my first year at this school I am concerned about the safety issues. There has been a break-in in the girls dorm, a peeping tom in the ladies restroom, and there as been a sexual offender on the loose around campus. Due to these concerns it would be best if campus police or securities were more visible and present around campus.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe in campus. I've been attending CSUN since 2010 and haven't experienced any issues regarding safety. There has been problems like someone coming to school with guns. But I feel that the police have took everything under control. The school quickly sends us emails, calls us regarding issues like this and this is very helpful and shows how important it is for them that we are safe.

College Freshman

Health & Safety: I've never had an experience with the Health and Safety at our school.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

CSUN's security department is pretty extensive, offering a lot of services for students to take advantage of, including crime prevention workshops and viewing crime logs online. It's good that the campus police have a strong presence, as minor offenses like petty theft can happen sometimes. If you're careful with your valuables and don't leave your belongings unattended or unlocked, then you should be OK, though. Aesthetically, the campus offers well-lit pathways, allowing students to walk safely at night. Based on the services and the way the campus is set up, students tend to feel very safe.

When it comes to health services, basic care and routine physicals are free, which is great for the broke college student. Plus, low-cost, over-the-counter products are available to students without a prescription. However, other "alternative" services like acupuncture and massage therapy come at a cost for students, so the health center isn't without its setbacks. All in all, though, if a student gets sick on campus, he or she most definitely can get the right care.
