Public Safety, or PS, as it is commonly known around campus, is the safety enforcer on campus. Public Safety officers are seen all around campus, either walking around, at their posts, or driving around in their cars, and they have no shame in doing their job. They are always on call, and PS headquarters has a regular phone line and an emergency one. There are also poles around campus that give students direct access to Public Safety in the event of an emergency. The officers do a reasonably good job of protecting the students, but some say that Public Safety pays more attention to parking violations than the safety of the students.
The health center is located behind the Sports Center and is open on weekdays. Students are seen by appointment, which can be made by phone or in person, but they will take you in without an appointment in the event of an emergency or a quiet day in the office. A variety of services are offered at the health center, including acute care, a full women's clinic, STD and lab testing, and an allergy clinic. They also prescribe medication that is available at the center for a minimal fee. The staff is very nice and glad to help the students, and the health services here generally work very well for everyone. The one negative is that while most services are free for undergrads, there is a fee for some things, and Health Services will not accept your home health insurance, so you must pay any acquired fees at the time of service.
