Health & Safety: The only thing I dont like about health services is that they only take Drew insurance, but no one tells you this when youre given the option to get Drew insurance or use your own. Also Drew insurance is very expensive, so passing it up takes a lot off your tuition, but you better not get sick.

Health & Safety: Public safety is usually prowling around, especially on the weekends, so if you need them they'll usually be close by.

Health & Safety: While I may have my issues with public safety I have to admit I have never personally felt in danger while on campus.

Health & Safety: My sophomore year I had a personal friend have burglars break into her room twice and steal 3 computers. While there are security attendants at most buildings, these are students who really don't care if you flash them your ID. You can also just get let in a side door and people will do it for you all the time.

Recently there was also a gun scare. The campus police reacted really well, but messages to the student body were not immediate and people were obviously panicked. In the end, everything worked out, but it would have been nice to have been informed. Apparently the system to inform us was somehow down, therefore we received emails at 3 and 4am... Nt somewhere you check first, especially if you don't have access to a computer or smartphone during a lockdown.

At the end of the day, I do feel safe on campus. Sure, things can get chaotic, but I have never felt like my life or belongings were really in danger.
