5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have blue poles where if you press the botton the cops come in no time. i always feel safe o matter what time of night i might be walking back to my dorm room for any reason.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It's great here. I feel extremely safe and do not fear for my health or safety.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: UPD is pretty nice and relaxed about things here. I heard two of them telling a student that raves are "The best parties to go to". So, they pretty much can connect with students. They're the nicest cops you'll probably ever meet.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Very much interested in the well-being of students and faculty alike, as well as visitors. 10/10.

When asked about campus security, some students said they would like to see more security or more of a security presence on campus. Those who live off campus are often concerned about walking back to their cars at night. There are not many emergency call-boxes on the way to or in the parking places. Some students will call someone on their cell phone, just so they have someone to talk to on the way back to their car.

All in all, though, security is present; it could just be a little more present. The main campus buildings and the parking garages can be a little scary at night. There are some emergency call-boxes, but there could be more.
