3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I think we are fairly safe on campus. We have at least two fire drills per semester and campus safety are just minutes away at any given time. The police are also close by. My only concern is theft. It is easy to forget to lock doors in our dorms and there is a constant threat that someone will just walk in and take something. It calls for a degree of care.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Recently ranked 5th in the nation for the safest campus. It's a great place to live and learn, the security is 24 hours but doesn't carry guns at the moment and I feel very safe. There is low crime with really only minor thefts occurring which occurs everywhere. Public safety will even escort you for free across campus if you need it. The Student health clinic is also free so that's really convenient.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: We are the 5th safest campus in the nation! Our Student Health Center is very accessible -- free doctor visits. The only things that cost money are like strep tests, immunizations, x-rays, etc -- all of which are very affordable. They also accept insurance.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have had no bad experiences so far, so all is well.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: ISU is the 6th safest school in the United States, I feel very safe at school.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Most students feel safe on campus due to the high patrol of Public Safety and the few minor crime reports and just because of the laid-back campus ISU has. Pocatello is generally a conservative town with a low crime rate. Most crime reports are related to parking issues or fender benders. There really are not a lot of problems on the ISU campus.

Every now and then, a report comes out about some stolen computers, but there is not a lot for students to be concerned about. It is impossible to walk to class without seeing a Public Safety officer on patrol. Public Safety also offers numerous self-defense classes, especially for women. The scariest part for any ISU student would probably be the off-campus alleys. There have been reports of peeping Toms and stalkers, so women especially would be wise to walk with somebody at night, lock house and car doors, and be aware of what is going on around them when walking in alleys or streets at night. While Pocatello is a safe town, that does not mean students do not need to watch out for themselves and know what to do if something were to happen.
