Health & Safety: The campus I attend is night classes and online. The campus seems to be quite safe the times I have been there. There doesn't seem to be much concern though.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is safe and has security roaming around, on foot and vehicle.

College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Higher learning facility. Not at the acutal college in Missouri. The office building has security and we feel pretty safe when we leave.

Health & Safety: Wish campus security was more visible at times and armed.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: You don't see very many campus police but they have security cameras. I feel ver safe.
