4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Mankato's campus is very safe, and there has been only one incident that involved police.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Bust too many innocent people who are just having a good time in college, don't spend as much time on actual crimes as they should be.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: There are plenty of campus security cars driving around campus 24/7 and plenty of security call boxes placed around campus in case of emergency.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Students are aware of any high-risk crime that takes place which is very uncommon. MSU is a part of the StarAlert program which alerts students with safety measures that are put in place at certain times and alerts students when a crime has occurred.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: CHEAP! that is very good!

Due to the diverse student population on campus, it is hard to spot someone out of place, so Campus Security, try as it might, does not do as well of a job as other schools. While Security has many services, such as emergency blue lights and an escort service, there have been complaints that its phones are always busy. Most security officers are work-study students who are majoring in law enforcement, and if there is something seriously wrong, you can count on them. Security also responds fairly quickly when someone pushes the button at an emergency blue light. There have been sexual and physical assaults on campus, but the perpetrators are generally caught quickly, and the school is very good about letting students know about these kind of issues.

Security in the dorms is extremely good. In the newer dorm buildings, such as Julia Sears, Crawford, and McElroy, the side doors are card-access only and the front doors lock at 11 p.m., so students need a MavCard to enter their dorm and floor. In older dorm buildings, such as Gage Towers, students use their room keys to get into the building.
