4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The Campus Security are great - friendly when they are on their rounds, are an active part of campus without being overbearing, and are always close if they are needed. The health services are easy to get to, friendly, and non-judgemental - but if you need to see a Doctor for prescriptions and such, it will most likely be early in the morning.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus Security is more reactive that proactive. Campus Security is more for writing parking tickets.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I see them all the time, but I walk around campus a lot.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: our security team is made of of retired police men who are extremely caring and ready to take action if needed.

Health & Safety: Geneva College feels like a safe campus, and a security man is seen on patrol (in a car) often. However, Beaver Falls surrounding Geneva College is an older neighborhood and I would not suggest walking alone at night off campus.

Geneva’s campus and surrounding area are as safe as you could ask for. Students routinely leave their laptops unattended in the library or Student Center, and keep their dorm room doors open, too. The red security SUVs are a familiar sight patrolling the area at any time of day, and while the campus offers escort services, many students walk confidently across campus alone after midnight, especially along the new, brightly-lit pedestrian walkway. Incidents do happen, especially when walking the alleyways of College Hill, but common sense and traveling with friends wards off most dangers. Beaver Falls, just down the hill, has a reputation for being a rough neighborhood—and it is—but with a little common sense, it’s really not so bad, and most inhabitants are quite friendly.

The Nave Infirmary, home of Geneva’s Health Services, is a walk-in clinic run by two registered nurses from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. every weekday, with a nurse on-call 24/7 in case your issue doesn’t accommodate those hours. The infirmary is equipped for infections, illnesses, and injuries of all kinds, with a generous stock of OTC (over-the-counter) and prescription meds. Students who come in with a sniffle leave with enough cold medication to cure them and their roommates. A doctor is available by appointment for cases needing prescriptions or advanced care. All cases are, of course, confidential. For smaller cases, student health coordinators live in each residence building. If Geneva’s services aren’t what the doctor ordered, both a MedExpress and a hospital are within a 20-minute drive.
