4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Very safe. Anyone not belonging on campus would be noticed immediately, it's such a small place. It's rare to have to call the town cops. Low key security and student safety personnel are all that's necessary for safety which is usually related to after hours health issues.

Health & Safety: A Safe Place – Marlboro is a safe place. You can walk alone at night without feeling threatened, and we only have one security guard, Pete, who's known for his funny conversations at two in the morning.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: well is supper safe, we are on a mountain. accidents do happy when people are intoxicated, and it seems like it is much more of a big deal then it is because of the small amount of students hear. every one keeps there doors unlocked, and things don't get stolen. you can also just leave your things around and its fine. sometimes there will be petty theft, but everyone gets very angry about it and it ends shortly after it begins.

Niche User

Health & Safety: There's some guy in a security uniform. He doesn't do much, and the only thing he seems to bust people for is sleeping in the library.

Niche User

Health & Safety: We have a couple of security guards, they're nice guys. In a place where nobody locks the doors to their dorm rooms, and very few even have the keys that go to them, I think safety is created by the trust in the community.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

This may sound odd, but Marlboro has no campus police. In fact, there's a policy to keep police off of campus until a necessary situation arises. That way, the students are solely responsible for what goes on here. Most every building is unlocked 24 hours a day. Even Dalrymple, the academic building, is never closed. There's a community trust on campus that says people will generally not try to wrong one another. It also doesn't hurt that Marlboro only has about 300 students, so if someone steals something from you, you're going to see them with it the very next day.

Though generally calm and safe when it comes to security, thefts do occur. Computers left unattended for weeks on end (something very common in the library) may turn up missing when you return. As far as date rape, assault, harassment, and many other serious crimes, they do happen. When incidents of this nature occur, victims who speak out will attend Community Court, the judicial system within the Marlboro community. Any assortment of issues can be discussed there, and often an effective resolution can result. If troubles persist, outside forces will be contacted. Look at it this way: Generally, students at Marlboro feel safe walking at night alone.
