Health & Safety: Security is a huge problem, as there are several crimes and shootings on campus. These cause students fear and unease of their safety at all times.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As stated above, the campus police keep an eye on things but they do not swarm the students. I feel safe on my campus. While there is crime on campus, I have yet to see it taking more than five minutes for the police to arrive and handle the situation. I feel safe walking on campus at night but I also try to be proactive and avoid situations that could put me at risk.

Health & Safety: Security and safety is often a issue on most campuses which deters most students from living on campus. Strict policies and values are adhered to keep safety number one for all students. Values are often gained by keeping the rules and laws of the school to prevent injury or fault.

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus but security can always be improved upon.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Overall, there have been like 2 alleged rapes on campus. Now who is doing the raping I'm not sure. I honestly don't know what the campus can do to prevent these problems though, we are grown and there is plenty of partying going on but nobody speaks about these problems.

In reality, it is not safe to walk alone, so if you do decide to go out, utilize the "buddy system." Everywhere is pretty safe, except at night when people think it's OK to commit crime. The police service, located in between the Freshman Living and Learning Center (FLLC) and Camilla-Hubert, isn't the best, but they are working to ensure the safety of students. In addition, there are blue and white emergency call-boxes located throughout campus if a student is ever in danger. So to ensure your safety, be aware of your friends and surroundings.

Health care services (located by Payne Hall and the basketball court) is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Fridays from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. The physician’s clinic is available Monday through Thursday; sign-in time for seeing the doctor is at 5 p.m. sharp. There are also after-hour services provided from outside sources. Students should check the school website for the available providers.
