3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The campus police are around but mostly to monitor parties.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: If you're on-campus, usually things are pretty okay. But the moment you get on any street just outside of the campus, everything goes to Hell.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is mostly safe to go around most times

Health & Safety: Department of Public Safety is constantly circling campus, especially during weekends. SU is one of the top universities for partying and quite often situations can get out of hand. It's also considered not safe to wander outside campus ground into surrounding neighborhoods.

The area around the Syracuse campus is not the safest at night. Armed robberies that occur on the outskirts of campus are reported almost bi-weekly. Still, the frequency of these instances is on the decline, as SU takes steps to remedy the situation. Recently, the Public Safety Officers on campus have been converted to “peace officers.” Still, if you do not walk alone after dark on a few notorious streets, you should stay unharmed during your four years at school. In other words, just use common sense.

One major note-the city Syracuse displays a strong dissemblance to the campus of Syracuse when discussing safety and security. Although some robberies occur on the outskirts of SU, more serous crimes like shootings, burglaries, and gang activity occur mostly in the inner city. Just don’t venture to that part of the city, especially not alone. Despite the fact that Syracuse is surrounded by a fairly rural area of Central New York, it still is a city with high crime rates. Just be careful, but don’t get overly stressed.
