4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus, but there are sketchy areas to avoid.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus security here is quite effective. However, there are still ongoing issues such as sexual assault and alcohol abuse, which I feel that the administration could make a greater effort in preventing.

Health & Safety: I feel really safe on campus and in Ann Arbor because Ann Arbor is ranked one of the safest cities in Michigan.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: As a young woman, I do not often feel safe walking alone at night, especially after a night of drinking. Reported crimes are committed multiple times a week during night hours. We need more security on campus. The university also needs to take sexual assault and rape more seriously. There is absolutely no reason to keep students who commit these assault crimes.

Health & Safety: While there are some safety issues, it is not really a problem. There are so many options for people to be safe.

Ann Arbor is a relatively safe city, but like most cities, there are occasional instances of crime. Whenever a crime is committed, every student receives a "Crime Alert" email, providing a detailed description of the event in an effort to prevent further instances. Though Ann Arbor is monitored by DPS (the University’s Department of Public Safety) as well as Ann Arbor's Police Department, students should avoid walking the streets alone late at night. A number of services exist to help students get home after hours. In terms of health, the University Health Services receives a lot of criticism. Scheduling an appointment is nearly impossible, and if you arrive without an appointment, you run the risk of waiting hours to receive care. If you need medical assistance, don't bother trying to schedule an appointment unless you can afford to wait a week. Your best bet is to head to the emergency room or find a ride to Ann Arbor's Urgent Care Clinic.
