3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I am almost always pretty comfortable walking alone. There are blue emergency lights visable on all the main paths throuh campus. There are escorts that work with campus police who are available to call if you would preffer to walk with someone.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe most the time, but I know there are a lot of instances of sexual assault and that's one of my biggest fears. I don't feel comfortable walking alone in the dark, I feel like security is definitely lacking.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Most people get help, however when I had a sinus infection they gave me no help and charged me $70

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: On week days, cops are typically around if you need them. On weekends they are more active around campus and are always willing to give me a ride home if I do not feel comfortable waling by myself. Typically, I feel extremely safe on campus and do not feel the need to ask for a ride.

Health & Safety: Seeing campus security is rare. There is an escort program to call when you would like an escort around campus by a campus cop.

No matter how you look at it, NAU is a safe place to be. Every once in a while, there is a sexual assault, usually on South Campus, and students will feel a little spooked. Sexual assault usually consists of a homeless person yelling at a girl that she's hot. Yet, the consensus of most people seems to be that if you practice common sense, then there is nothing to worry about. Flagstaff is the "Dark Sky City," so it only makes sense not to walk by yourself if you don't have to. The blue-light phones are scattered all around campus, and NAUPD offers an escort service 24 hours a day. In addition, the on-campus police maintain a highly visible role and are constantly on the watch. Flagstaff is a very laid-back community, so very few serious problems ever arise. The residence halls have electronic access, which means that you have to swipe your ID card to enter and only residents of that building will be let into the building. Once again, practicing common sense makes the environment safer for everyone.

Flagstaff is a safe place, no doubt about it. If students are able to use their heads and not put themselves into positions where bad things could happen, then all will be just fine. There is a decent-sized homeless population, but to be honest, most of them would rather have a friendly conversation with you than beg for your money. The police maintain a good balance and are not overly strict. They are around to deal with situations, but they don't hover to the point where students feel uncomfortable. In the end, if people make smart choices and are careful about what they do, there's no reason not to feel safe or relaxed.
