5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Our blue light system is comforting because you can see them every corner you turn. Also cops are always available when you need them.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The police are only around if there are big parties going on or if they're called by someone.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Radford is a fairly quiet town, there are certain areas of it that can be considered 'shady'.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are those blue lights all over campus. You press the button if you need help and the police appear.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: some of the physicians just restate what the patients already know

The University has always boasted a serious security program on campus. There are several blue-light emergency poles scattered around campus, and the response time is less than two minutes. The reasons for calling can be as simple as needing an escort because it's late at night, feeling uncomfortable walking alone, or an actual emergency. Security personnel walk the campus at night, and due to the active nature of Radford students, campus and local police patrol until the early hours of the morning.

An alert system installed on campus involves sirens, text message alerts, phone calls, and emails. Students can sign up to receive alerts to their cell phones and email accounts, as well as their parents' accounts. But, overall, Radford students say they feel safe walking across campus, whether it's in the middle of the day or at 2 in the morning. Police are often patrolling at night, and it is not unheard of to see them on a daily basis. University Police are actively involved on campus and in the surrounding city blocks.
