4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Your needs will be met.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: We have had some moments, I am sure you all have seen on the news. Regardless of what you have hear I feel extremely safe on campus.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Very safe, an upside to all the old people

4 College Student

Health & Safety: I've only gotten a few alerts on something unsafe happening on campus. I feel safe walking on campus and our school does its best to keep it that way.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We need police who are there not to just give parking tickets. The past few times something serious has happened on campus, they haven't done their best; that is just the view from the students on campus.

FAU has many services to offer in the ways of health and safety. In terms of health services, FAU has resources for after-hour emergencies, a wellness task force, and an AIDS committee, in addition to the basic health care the University provides its students.

The department of Environmental Health and Safety has the goal of providing the safest environment possible for FAU's students, staff, and faculty. This department goes above and beyond with its services, offering students programs involving the use of animals on campus, biological and chemical safety, driving and boating safety, and stormwater management. You name it—FAU probably has an answer to it.
