5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: they have a great health center

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. I have never had to see the nurse but I've heard she can't do everything a regular doctor can.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus is completely safe. However, Newport News and Hampton can get very sketchy. As long as you stay on/near the nicer parts of town there is nothing to worry about.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The police department of Christopher Newport University is highly dedicated to the safety of the students. They have provided a more than adequate number of resources by which any student desiring security, protection, or answers of any kind can contact them, and they will gladly help with any problem. They patrol the campus constantly; hardly ten minutes goes by walking around the campus without seeing a car marked "CNU Police Department" rolling down one of the side streets making sure that everything is fine.

5 College Student
