3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Overall the health and safety on campus is average. Where NCSU is located in Raleigh causes a lot of the problems and thefts that happen, however, there is not an excessively large amount of criminal activity happening around campus and there is almost none on campus. The good thing is that we get alerts whenever something happens so that we know what to do and how to handle situations if they were to happen again.

College Junior

Health & Safety: I do not spend a lot of time outside of the daytime hours that I attend class, on or near campus. I live far off campus with my husband, and don't feel unsafe when I am on campus, nor do I see trouble anywhere, but do get reports to my email when something has occurred on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is a lot available to help protect students. There are blue lights every 100 yards or so. If you press the light, it alerts the campus police and they come to assist.

NC State considers safety a top priority. The campus grounds are dotted with blue-light emergency phones, and Campus Police offers an escort service for students. Despite their positive role on campus, though, they're often shown disdain by the students because of their role in monitoring underage drinking. Another common complaint is the massive number of parking tickets distributed.

Bicycle storage and dorm entrances are also not very tightly secured. All dorms are locked, and students are supposed to verify their residence in a dorm using their IDs or call a room using the speaker phones outside the hall, but the majority of the time, students let one another in, regardless; there are usually no security guards around the dorm entrances. Many bike racks are near dorms and classroom buildings, and after a bike has been stolen, a student's only recourse is to file a report with Campus Police; there is typically nothing the police can do, unless someone saw a suspect. Overall, students feel that Campus Police have the right priorities, but there is room for improvement in a few areas.
