4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The health and safety of students is very important. the campus police are always on standby should anything happen, and anyone can contact them as easy as the normal police. The dorms also have health and safety inspections every month or so to ensure nothing bad is happening in any dorm rooms(its just a quick look to make sure its not a mess, they don't go through your stuff or anything)

Health & Safety: Recently, a crime has happened near campus and students where notified through email. The police on campus are not seen around campus a lot. They are mainly in their vehicles driving around campus or at their station. Anyone can walk on campus which affects one's personal safety. There is only two cameras outside of campus. I feel there needs to be more cameras on campus and the police walk on campus more instead of driving around. There are emergency phones placed around campus and in the campus garage which can be beneficial in case of an emergency.

Health & Safety: It's unfortunate, but I'm consistently getting emails from the campus police about thefts and the like around the campus. There seems to be quite a bit of crime that happens around the school, but from what I understand, it mostly happens at night. The nice thing is that the campus police do send out emails with warnings about any possible danger, so it's nice that they are involved.

Health & Safety: I like my school and I would recommend it to others.

Health & Safety: The school isn't in a particularly good area, but there's never been a huge threat to us on campus.
