3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I usually feel safe when on campus. The cops aren't usually seen unless some one got caught with weed so we see them a few times a week.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The cops make sure you are being safe but are generally really nice and help you out as much as possible.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: It easy to get free health care and we have pretty good doctors, but the hours can be difficult to work with, especially during the weekend.

Safety during the night has gone down lately, but it is no where near that of a large city. If someone sees something, they will usually say something.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The crime on campus is very well managed. There has been reported issues, but they are controlled and appropriately handled.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Have NEVER felt unsafe on campus very little crime and walked alone all of the time

In 2009, the campus installed blue-light centers where students can pick up a phone and get campus police. Any time a button on these blue-light phones is pressed, police officers are dispatched ASAP. While the University has been implementing more safety measures, there are still some incidents around campus; in 2012, two sexual assaults were reported. This can be pretty scary, so it's important to remember to always travel in groups in well-lit areas. 

The school does a good job of trying to keep drunk driving down, one of the biggest criminal problems in Montana. As the campus is surrounded by nice, safe neighborhoods, students will sometimes choose to walk back to their dorms if the party is nearby. And while the residents of these nice neighborhoods do not usually enjoy hearing a bunch of drunk college students laughing and singing outside, they do understand that Bozeman is a college town and rarely do they report anyone for causing a small disturbance.
