Safety is a no. 1 concern at Georgia College! It is hard to walk a block without passing a campus police officer driving or walking around campus. The campus and surrounding parking lots are well lit at night, but if you ever feel unsafe, a campus police officer would be more than happy to escort you wherever you need to go. Also, emergency buttons are located all over campus—in the event that you need help quickly.

The Public Safety building is open 24 hours a day, with officers available at all times. Public Safety also offers the SNAP service (Student Night Auxiliary Patrol), which provides students with a safety escort on a golf cart. This is a great service for late nights at the library! There are also emergency buttons located in every dorm room, which, when pressed, alert Public Safety immediately. Students at Georgia College have a great relationship with the campus police and are thankful to have such devoted officers.
