3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There needs to be more comprehensive consent workshops, and the main street is often a dangerous place to walk, however the security vans are helpful and make me feel much safer.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The health care center is okay the open hours are not convenient at times and the appointment system is better than last year but could use improvement through a most open schedule.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Security cameras need to be added around campus and an increase of thefts and sexual assaults has started, which is alarming.

Health & Safety: saftey tends to not be a concern for students on campus

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Health services is just okay here. I've had some strange experiences, but they seem to get the job done. There's a little bit too much emphasis on mental health here. I understand the importance, but having to fill out a mental health survey every time you go there because you have a cold or a stomach bug is kind of ridiculous. My mental health isn't going to change in the three days that my stomach bug got worse. Besides that, the health services building is also really inconveniently located and I know a lot of freshmen who get lost trying to find it. Despite that, they provide mediocre care and you're in good enough hands if you just have the flu or a similar ailment. That and security is good here. We've had some sporadic incidents on campus, but security really isn't to blame since most were committed by SLC students. Security is visible enough and they only bust parties when people call to complain, which is sadly kind of frequent, but if you're holding a small get-together where people are just drinking socially, you shouldn't be worried about campus security doing anything.

That bizarre buzzing sound you heard at 3 a.m. was probably a security guard circling campus in a Honda Pilot. Security guards are a familiar, reliable presence, and the numerous emergency towers make it easy to contact them if you’re in trouble. Students agree that the campus feels safe, but its urban surroundings can get creepy at night. Nervous about walking around campus after dark? Catch a ride with the student shuttle. Unfortunately, security can’t always be in the right place at the right time, and students have been victims of harassment and robbery on the streets surrounding the campus. The best plan is to avoid traveling alone and to stay off roads such as Kimball Avenue unless it’s absolutely necessary. On campus, crime largely revolves around students who make the mistake of leaving their belongings unattended or their rooms unlocked.

Health Services is a mixed bag. The options are comprehensive, and you’ll be treated nicely by a staff of kindhearted professionals. But the cramped, outdated building that houses Health Services spells inconvenience. They don’t have room for a full laboratory, meaning no HIV testing, nor do they have space to hire more nurses, meaning you’ll be in the waiting room flipping through magazines for a long time if you don’t make an appointment.
