3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I went to Fort Lewis College for two semesters. During the first semester, there had been a sexual assault on the nature trail, and I didn't hear about it until the second semester when a new student told me about it. I do like the fact that if I contact the campus police they will give me a weekly crime report.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: not much campus crime. Phones out side throughout the college for emergency use. special security measures.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. Our biggest threat is wildlife such as bears and mountain lions, which I have never seen on campus in my four years here.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security is pretty tight, but they never seem to be where they are needed. The health center is located where most of the dorms are, so that is pretty convenient.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: While I have never felt unsafe at the Fort, I know that if I needed help there are blue phones all over campus that provide instant access to campus police.
