3 College Junior

Health & Safety: You see Public Safety riding around but they are too concerned with things like parking and not enough about students safety while out drinking.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I know that there are cases that the university tries (and succeeds) in hushing up. Very few people know about them and they aren't reported, which makes it kind of scary.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Health center could be more useful. Public Safety is always around.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Public safety and health services at SU are great. All of the public safety officers are approachable and not intimidating or commanding. They make themselves visible on campus, and in the event that there is some sort of disturbance, they are quick to the scene. The campus itself feels very safe; students frequently walk by themselves late at night on their way from one building to another. However, when women walk home from off-campus parties, it is definitely a good idea to walk with at least one other person, just in case. There are many situations where a student's safety is dependent on his own common sense as well as that of his friends. SU has had several sexual assaults in recent years, and although date rape and assault happen on all campuses, the same rules remain the most effective: Don't put your drink down, don't go anywhere by yourself, and always make sure your friends are accounted for. There is a standing joke between females at SU that whatever symptoms you walk into the health center with, the nurses will always ask if you need a pregnancy test. Although it seems slightly odd to be offered a pregnancy test when you've sprained your ankle, it's a relief that the nurses and doctors are willing to discuss sexual activity frankly with students, as well as offer contraceptives, if needed.
