4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I had a few night classes and I always felt safe walking to and from campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Personally I always feel safe. Campus security makes their rounds on campus, there are emergency buttons if you need help, and you really don't hear about crime going around campus.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are police that walk the premises and there are emergency poles that are all around campus, there to help whatever situation that could potentially occur. (Worst case scenario.)

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Very helpful and always available. I enjoy their booth set up on Wednesdays to talk about safe sex and any important health related dates.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: For the most part I feel safe on campus. Lately I have heard incidences about some on campus robberies but I have not gotten any fear from them because of how the on campus police officers handled the situation in their reports, advised students on what precautions to take, and information they sent out to the whole student body via university email. I appreciate the way UPD informs the students on campus and allow them to be aware of what is going on in the community.

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.
