The Kentucky campus has been featured in several recent crime reports, especially crimes against women. However, drastic measures have been instilled to ensure student safety: a large number of officers patrol on bike, foot, and car, and safety buttons have been installed all over campus; just pressing them guarantees a quick response. Unfortunately, services like Catwalk have been handed over from organization to organization in a bidding war, leaving the service under-funded and all but abandoned. The best way to stay safe on campus is to store the campus police phone number in your cell phone and always travel with other students if you have to walk on campus at night. There really is safety in numbers! With a good measure of common sense, students should be safe on campus. Cellular phones are available for checkout at the William T. Young Library to make sure students have some way of being heard. What a great safety measure!
Student Health Services are effective, as well. Being away from home during a sick time is always unsettling but Health Services finds a way to set-up appointments and get students feeling better as quickly and efficiently as possible.
