3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I never really had any problems with personal safety issues on campus. everyone is relatively considerate when it comes to crime etc. Public safety typically breaks up any fights so nothing is too major regarding this topic.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe, but I worry about others' choices.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are Public Safety people wandering around campus all the time, plus there is a police station just down the street a few blocks

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Public Safety is always patrolling and checking building security. Any break ins that happen in the dorms are usually from people being negligent - leaving he doors unlocked or open for extended periods of time. Sometimes things happen on campus, but Public Safety gets right on it and alerts the campus to the danger. Incidents are so few and far between that when they do happen, everyone knows about it and everyone is shocked.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Over the past couple years more incidents of theft have been occuring, which has made me feel less safe than I felt Freshman Year. We have Public Safety on campus 24/7 on call to respond and are contstantly circling campus as well. They respond quickly to medical emergencies as well. McKendree is a dry campus as well so if you are caught, you are not going to just get away with it.

McKendree is a pretty safe university. Public Safety officers are always on the lookout throughout the day and night. Some of the safest places include Piper Academic Center, Holman Library, Bothwell Chapel, Voigt Science Hall, New Hall West, New Hall East, and the bookstore. All dorms, new or old, have a black keypad to scan your student ID, meaning only McKendree students who live in that particular dorm can enter. Old Main is one of the older buildings on campus and sometimes features a lot of wasps flying around, particularly on the third floor. Generally, students feel safe walking around campus at night, and Public Safety will follow you to your car if you want them to. The best thing to do is to walk to your car with a friend of yours, so you feel more safe. 

Health Services is located in Clark Hall on the first floor and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Also, comprehensive counseling services are available to students. In addition to basic medical care, the registered nurse on staff can also provide over-the-counter medications.
