2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There have been several issues with guns being on campus and students being sexually harassed or raped within the dorm rooms. The large amount of violence that has occurred compared to the number of students on campus is outrages. The only available health clinic is a not a nurses office and is only a clinic that has very limited hours of operation. This created issues when I recieved a concussion my first semester and was not able to get to the hospital or see a trained professional.

Health & Safety: Campus crime is at an all time low with our campus being less than 5 minutes from a police station. We always have officers riding around the campus to ensure that everything is fine, and if they aren't on campus you can call and have them there immediately.

3 College Junior

4 College Junior
