4 College Student

Health & Safety: my only concern is after work I have to walk from athletic center to the dorms and its a long dark walk.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Health and safety are great. The security guards are not very visible but they are there. The Health center is conveniently located and always open.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe while walking on campus at night, security is always available and driving around campus.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus Safety – I feel safe on campus, but at times, question the fact that there is no security to let students in. I went to undergrad in a highly urban area, and students were required to show their ID to get into every campus building. While I do not think such extremes are needed at Iona College, it would be nice to have more security officers present in different buildings, especially at the Murphy Center, which is where I attend classes in the evening.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I think that Iona College takes the safety of their students very seriously. I have never come across an incident where I felt unprotected--the security staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Certain precautionary measures are taken to ensure student safety, for example after around 10pm, a security guard is watching the door to every dorm hall. Little reassurances like these make me feel safe at Iona.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Iona is a secure place to be at all hours of the day through the presence of campus security. Cars from security are always driving through campus, and it can get annoying at times, especially when security chooses to flash its lights. The security office is located right in the middle of campus, so if a problem happens, students are able to find security quickly. There are also security phones located in different spots at Iona; at night, they glow blue, and students can press a button to talk to security if there is a problem.

Even though Iona has tight security and generally a safe surrounding area, students should still be responsible late at night on weekends. Students have to be careful because depending on how far you stray from Iona, you can end up in an unsafe area and lose your wallet or purse before you know it. Along with the safe environment, the dorms are protected pretty well because all residents must show their ID at the front desk, and nonresidents must sign in to enter the dorms. At night, campus security heads the front desk to deal with students and keep the dorms in order. Besides security, health services are offered at Iona, which include first aid for injuries, health screenings, vaccinations, and wellness promotion programs. The office is only open during the day, though, so it is not very helpful for students in the evening.
