3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Police is visible but not in your face. At this point, I feel safe on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus is really safe, and if you ever feel unsafe, call the campus police and they will escort you where you need to go. I keep the number in my speed dial, but have never needed it. They have a no questions policy, so never hesitate to call if you don't feel safe.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is always someone to talk to or see if a student needs them

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: there are safety posts with buttons to call police everywhere. at least 10 feet withing you at all times on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I never had any issues while attending HSU, but I also didn't live on campus. I have heard of 1 robbery that occurred on campus, which is currently being investigated. I suppose this could happen anywhere, but it is rare for this kind of occurrence in this area.
