5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe wandering around campus in the wee hours of the morning. At 4 in the morning, you will see inebriated girls walking around half-naked without a care in the world. I have never heard of any sexual assault problem on our campus. We also have emergency buttons stationed throughout the school. I have never had to use one, but it's nice to know that there will always be one a few steps away if needed.

At orientation, you are also given a rape whistle if you want to carry it around with you, but I would say it's unnecessary. LMU is a small, enclosed campus that is very hard for strangers to get into. Security is constantly patrolling the area, so you don't have anything to worry about!

5 College Sophomore

Unlike other Los Angeles universities, LMU does not need the security measures of a military base to keep students safe. There are two entrances: the main entrance off Lincoln Boulevard and a second entrance at Loyola Boulevard. A security booth stands at the gated front entrance to the campus, but the gate remains open during the day. After 11 p.m. you must swipe your student ID card to get in. The back entrance off of Loyola Boulevard offers access only to students and faculty with ID cards, so visitors have to go through the main entrance. The light security at the entrances allows people from the surrounding neighborhoods to walk on to campus, but occasionally it also lets in a few shady characters. However, public safety’s police-styles SUVs patrol the campus constantly. If a serious problem develops, they call the LAPD.

Traffic regulations on campus are strict, so one of the public safety officers’ main duties is to issue parking tickets. They frequently respond to reports of underage drinking or minor thefts, but students cause virtually all of these incidents. There are also occasional incidents of harassment between students, but only a few cases of assault in the University’s history. The flaw in LMU security is in the gated entrances. Anyone can enter the campus on foot, and usually, guards at the security booth do not stop cars that do not have a University parking permit. But overall, students do not worry about physical safety because serious or violent crime is almost non-existent

Did You Know?
  • On April 26, 2004, construction crews nearby unearthed two World War II-era explosive casings, forcing LMU to evacuate half of the campus. The school canceled classes for the day, and LMU students responded in characteristic fashion: campus bands gave an impromptu concert, and students put aside their books to play Frisbee as the helicopters hovered overhead.
  • In Fall 2004, a series of incidents involving vandalism and racial slurs rocked the LMU campus. Students responded by hosting a protest march and anti-discrimination rally.
