Health & Safety: Saint Mary's takes the safety of the girls on campus really seriously. They have 24/7 security that can pick you up from Notre Dame's campus and anywhere on our campus. They will also take you to and from the hospital if necessary. Personally, I think they are all wonderful people -- always looking out for the students, and not rude or judgmental of issues you may be having (for example, they will pick you up even if you are black out drunk because they'd rather you get back safely). Saint Mary's also has a wonderful policy called the Good Samaritan Rule. This says that if you call for help for your friend and stay with her, you won't get in trouble if you were doing anything illegal (like drinking underage). Overall, Saint Mary's puts the safety of it's students over the enforcement of the rules, which I think is wonderful. They could work on their actual presence on campus though -- unless you call security, it's unlikely that you will see them more than every 20 minutes or so.

Health & Safety: The campus health center sucks, they hardly assisted when I had a killer cold and I had to keep coming back several times to figure what was the issue. If you have the choice, try to go back home to your own doctor. Concerning safety, there are constantly warnings and alerts about issues going on being emailed, the campus isn't well lit and scary. I hated walking back to the dorm from my car because it seems so desolate and makes me feel like a prime target. I also heard of horror stories about girls getting attacked and hurt.
