College Junior

Health & Safety: I attend an online university.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: There is always staff present and willing to help

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel safe walking across campus at all hours of the day. Perhaps that's because I almost never leave my dorm without a knife (out of habit, not necessity), but still. Everyone on our police force must go through actual police training to be hired, and our police officers are always armed. I also take comfort in the fact that once I turn 21 and get my Concealed Carry Permit, I can carry a gun everywhere I go (except in the dorms, of course, due to Virginia law). That might upset some readers and potential students, but for me, it's nice to know that I'll be able to properly defend myself and those around me in the unlikely event of a school shooting.
