Safety and security at San Diego State is strong. You will notice this by walking around campus and seeing the safety patrol vehicles driving through at all hours of the day. Safety at San Diego State is a non-issue for most people. With abundant blue-light emergency stations located throughout campus and a 24-hour escort service, students feel they are being adequately protected by campus security. Every once in a while, you will hear about an incident that occurred in one of the parking structures late at night, but these happenings are infrequent, and almost always end with the victim getting away safely. Most people go throughout their entire career at San Diego State without ever experiencing an incident that would have them questioning their safety. The school goes to great lengths to ensure that students are being watched out for, and every year security is getting stronger, and students are being more closely looked out for.
Overall, security on campus is great, and almost all students feel safe around San Diego State. Most incidents tend to take place in fraternity houses and house parties, where there is little security and regulation. If the school were to hire more security guards to watch over the parking structures 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the parking structures would be solid, and these incidents that are sometimes written about in the Daily Aztec would never occur. Besides these issues, students should feel undoubtedly safe when walking around campus. Safety and Security is definitely strong, but it could be even stronger if some minor alterations were made to security procedures.
