3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe walking alone on campus and in the dorms. Campus police officers are a visible presence.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: everything here seemed half done to be honest. it's not good.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus security is always present. They are there if you need them but not always present to be overbearing. There's always the fear of crime but keeping alert can help you but also security as well.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The EIU campus is a very secure place to live. They make sure to explain the reality of the situations fully, and how to be as safe as possible. They have cameras all around dorms, and police that are constantly doing rounds all over campus. The safety precautions taken are not just a school-week thing, they are 24/7.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: This school year has not been as bad as last year. Last year we were having a lot of problems with break-ins and theft. This year seems to be a lot quieter and more easy going.
