The safest areas on campus are the main buildings where most students attend classes because there are always people around. Public Safety is also located in this area. Other safe places are the Student Center, Neff Athletic Center, and the dining hall area. The most unsafe areas on campus are the surrounding city streets of the College and buildings that are not often used since people are not usually around to help in case of an emergency. Students feel safe enough to walk alone at night on campus, but they do not feel safe enough to walk alone off campus during the day or night. Students should always walk in groups or with at least one other person because the city streets are just not safe and you never know if something could occur. Cell phones should always be with students in case something does happen.
The campus police do have a visible presence, and they are often outside checking things out, especially in the parking lot since many cars get broken into. There are cameras, so they can keep an eye on all locations at one time. The Wellness Center is accessible to all students and is very convenient. It is located on the first floor of Kellas (the freshman dorm) and is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. It offers many services such as flu shots, birth control prescriptions, protection for sex, and just regular medical prescriptions that students may need. The Wellness Center also provides the school with a peer educator group that takes part in school activities in order to raise awareness or to just educate students about health-related problems.
