3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: public safety seems to patrol campus periodically. i would love to see them do it more

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: When night classes are in effect they are always riding around looking for anything that may seem strange.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safe and Sound – The Public Safety are there to help. And I have never felt unsafe on campus. They will escort you to your room if you are afraid to walk back to your room at night. They are there when you need them, but they aren't overbearing.

The campus is very secure. Public Safety follows good policies and keeps the students safe. There has been some crime on campus—such as car break-ins, room break-ins, and vandalism—but not much else. If students are wary about walking around on campus alone at night, Public Safety will pick up students in golf carts and escort them to another area of campus. Public Safety is available 24/7 and does patrols around campus all night. The most unsafe areas on campus would be the outskirts of campus property, the areas that meet with the town's community. The community isn't particularly unsafe, but the campus is just safer.

The Proctor Health Center is accessible, and the nurses are very friendly. They do whatever they can to make sure you are healthy and feel better if you are sick. If you need a prescription, they call it in for you and let you know when it will be ready for pickup at the pharmacy.
