4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus security and staff are very friendly and helpful. I never feel worried to walk around at night, and the health center is always close by.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are many places on campus where there's a button to click if you want an officer to escort you back to campus.

Health & Safety: The school is very safe! There may be fights every once and a while, and a lot of parking tickets. But overall it is safe!

Health & Safety: I guess it's alright, although the people are generally responsible in making sure that they don't get caught. In that respect, the authority figures aren't that bright.

The campus has a very low crime rate and nearly nonexistent violent crime. One of the leading campus crime problems is drinking and driving. Operating Under the Influence, or OUI rates, have been increasing in recent years. Campus security is very aware of the presence of OUI occurances and takes stringent measures to prevent them from occurring. Public Safety makes regular patrols of campus roadways and College Avenue, including fraternity houses and the corresponding parking lots. The patrols are much more intense Thursday nights through Sunday mornings. Public Safety officers and security guards make regular patrols of campus buildings, including residence halls. Inside the residence halls, an on-duty RA makes hourly rounds throughout the building to check on residents.

Public Safety also provides escorts around campus at night if students feel uncomfortable walking alone. Since walking alone is not recommended at night in even the safest environments, the campus has volunteers who will walk with students at night through the Campus Walking Companions program. The campus is well-lit at night, especially around buildings and in frequented walking areas, near classrooms, the Mall, and Memorial Union. Parking lots, streets, and walking paths are all appropriately lit for safe travel and walking. Some areas that are not frequented at night may have less adequate lighting, so a Campus Walking Companion may be desirable in those areas during late hours. Campus Walking companions are available Sunday to Thursday from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. and Friday to Saturday from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. To request a walking companion during these hours, call (207) 581-WALK (9255).
