Most students feel extremely safe on campus because there is a strong sense of camaraderie, and Aggies look out for other Aggies. However, living inside the Aggie Bubble leads many people to believe they’re always safe. In the not-so-distant past, there were reported cases of assault, and even rape, on campus, and there are also bike thefts here and there—a lot of students have expensive bikes, and there is really no way to track them, so make sure you lock up your bike well. However, A&M does a lot to protect its students. If you’re on campus, you can call the Corps of Cadets escort service at any time at night, and a Corps member in uniform will walk you anywhere on campus. The campus is pretty well lit, and there are emergency phones throughout. But, regardless of how many services are offered, safety is something every student needs to be actively conscious of. Never walk alone or put yourself into potentially dangerous situations, no matter how safe you think you might be.

As for health, A&M’s Beutel Health Center is where you can go if you’re feeling sick. Most services are free, but if you have to pay for something, it can be added to your student account. There are also urgent care centers located throughout College Station, as well as a couple hospitals in Bryan if you ever have an emergency. But, overall, A&M provides enough services to take good care of its Aggies when it comes to health and safety.
