2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Usually a lot of muggings at the off campus bars

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus police are around, but not everywhere all the time. Fall 2013 there were some violence issues surrounding campus, because the campus is not in a great area of Des Moines. I feel completely safe walking around by myself during the day, but at night I would rather not. Nothing has ever happened, but it's just a weird feeling.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They are just unaware of most things

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are shooting around campus, but never on campus, and some people have been mugged, but they have "press this button to call campus security" poles.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Because of Drakes location in Des Moines security and safety of students is of high priority. Drake employs the larges private security team in the state and they are available 24/7. They can be at any location on campus in under 30 seconds.
