2 College Senior

Health & Safety: I don't understand why the cops aren't riding around at night. They need to be since crime has increased over the past year on-campus.

Health & Safety: You can sign up for alerts either via text or email that let you know whenever anything is going on around campus (crime, weather, etc.) and I feel that those are a great tool. Those allow students to get a heads up of what's happening and how it's being taken care of. I see quite a few campus patrol cars every now and then and that's reassuring. I feel pretty safe on campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Very few occurrences of issues, but walk with someone at night

Health & Safety: Safety is great. Campus security shows a presence on a regular basis and are always there if you need them. There a call boxes throughout campus if you need them and can call at night if you want an escort home

Health & Safety: haven't used it yet so not sure
