3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I don't really have any problems with health or safety on campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus police are always just a call away and they also ride around campus patrolling it to make sure everything is all right.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They roll around often but they are not really personable if you know what I mean, they play favorites.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are a few incidents on campus but overall it is safe. I feel safe walking home from the library at nights and if I really need help then campus security is very convenient.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus. The campus security really makes me feel safe and there is a health center for if you become ill.

Most students will tell you that they feel very safe at the University of Mount Union. Campus is small, and for many, it's not a big deal to walk alone, even at night. The campus itself usually isn't perceived as dangerous, except for theft and robbery that sometimes occurs in the residence halls; however, many students look at the city of Alliance with suspicion. Two of the things that concern Mount students most are criminal activity in the surrounding area and nonstudents (known as "townies") who venture onto campus. However, there are eight emergency phones scattered around, and Campus Security is highly visible. You can always call them to report something suspicious or to get a ride if you don't feel comfortable walking. 

Students feel pretty secure with the safety measures on campus, but they have less trust in the Mount Union Health Center. A common complaint is that hours are inconvenient (an actual doctor is only available one hour per day) and it is closed on the weekends. Unless you do see the doctor, you will be examined by a nurse who can treat your symptoms, but not much else. Flu shots and other vaccines are available, often for free, which is a plus. For after-hours care or emergencies, students can go to the Alliance Community Hospital, located just a few blocks from campus.
