Health & Safety: I honestly feel really safe on campus, and the school is very transparent about what happens so I've felt paranoid that it might be worse than I think, from what they say. There are emergency phones in and on the outside of basically every building and if one ever felt the need to be escorted home, campus safety does provide that service. In the winter you can even get a ride and escort, rather than just a walking escort (we have a very small campus so we mostly would just walk). Campus safety can reached 24/7 and they do respond promptly and if there is some kind of emergency involving alcohol or drugs, students are given amnesty and their safety is made the most important issue in those situations.

Health & Safety: Overall, I find this campus to be a safe place. This does not mean bad things never happen, they do, but generally speaking, the bad things get handled well.

Completely honestly though, sexual assault has not been handled well by administrative personnel. Students care, students care a LOT, but the people in charge of campus try to brush things under the rug or don't put much effort into counseling services. Students have been working hard to change this, though, and it is working(!) and our administrative response to these kinds of things is improving.

Health & Safety: Overall this campus is very safe. It is a close-knit community and we all look out for each other. As with any other college campus, sexual assault is a problem that can be improved and an open dialogue is under way about how best to do that. I personally feel very safe walking around the campus alone at night, but there are also 24 hour escorts and campus safety patrols that you can call.

Health & Safety: Better if they weren't there

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campus. Campus safetly is always there to walk students home if they feel unsafe, although I have never used that option. The campus is small so if you're walking home late at night you never have far to go.
