3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus is really safe considering how horrible the surrounding area is. Health services is free and the doctors are nice.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: When theirs a crime, I like to think I'm pretty safe, I don't worry too much because the police are pretty much always on top of things.

Health & Safety: I'm just gonna mention the lockdown that happened when there was a suspected man armed with a shotgun on campus and my professor didnt even bother to close and lock the door after everyone got the alert call. It was a false alarm, but you think people would have treated it more seriously. Students have no idea what to do in the event of a lockdown or fire drill. Car jackings are common and stuff gets stolen frequently.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There seem to be an abundance of police on campus but their main priority appears to be geared to ticketing rather than providing security.
