3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: UAA is located in the UMed District, across the street from the main hospital in Anchorage. We get some very strange non student individuals that wander around, particularly near the library. There have been a lot of attempted rape or assault on campus, with a handful of actual assaults.

College Student

Health & Safety: I haven't felt insecure on campus. I generally choose not to travel alone but I haven't had any issues.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I like that you can have someone from the school walk you to your car if you stay at the school late to study.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Although there have been incidents involving violence in the recent past, in general they are few and far between. I never take the trails near campus unless I am with a group, but the on campus walkways seem pretty secure. Thefts also occur sometimes, but it's not something I have experienced or about which I am particularly worried.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Not, much goes on here, only when things go out of hands.
