Health & Safety: The safety on campus is very good. I have heard of any crimes that are severe. The campus police are very well trained and are always on there job.

Health & Safety: I generally feel pretty safe on campus. There are quite a few nicely located emergency phone towers, and paths are usually well lit; unfortunately not all of the pathways are decently lit.

Health & Safety: The security may not be the best or have the largest presence, but the type of atmosphere around JSU generally doesn't give much to fear. I wish a few more of the common pathways were better lit that I have to cross at night because while there's not usually any issues, I know one crazy person could change that and I wish I could see better taking those routes. Other than that there's usually not any trouble unless you go out of your way trying to find some.

Health & Safety: Safety at JSU is my biggest problem with the school. We have a much too-high rate of theft, both in parking lots and in buildings. There are some remote parking lots for commuter students that are far away from all buildings except frat houses. It's terrifying walking alone to your car at night. There are frequently social groups of guys walking around with no purpose, drunkenly stumbling around and yelling belligerently. The Student Health Center, on the other hand, is great!!! It provides free health care for students, though quality may be questionable. But it's great for needing a quick doctor excuse and prescription when bugs are going around.

Health & Safety: Campus police are always patrolling around campus and their many places to get help if needed

In general, students and faculty feel safe and secure on campus. Crime happens in every town, though, and Jacksonville is certainly no exception. Look out for yourself by being aware of your surroundings. Travel in groups, especially after dark. If you are walking to your vehicle, have your keys out and ready to unlock your doors. Do not be overly trusting of people you don't know or have just met.

If you feel unsafe, don't hesitate to call the University Police Department for an escort. Also, emergency telephones with flashing lights are located all around campus. Pressing one button immediately connects you to the police.
