River Campus is generally thought of as very safe. Students feel comfortable walking around at any hour of the night, and there are multiple ways to contact security in the event of an emergency. Security is on constant patrol around campus, and there are more than enough on duty at any given time. The crime rate on campus remains low, and students feel safe walking around campus at any time of day.
Security is occasionally strict, as they are known to crack down on fraternities, and many end up on probation, so fraternity members resent security and say they give the fraternity houses undue attention. There was also an incident when security took students' bicycles that were not locked up for safekeeping. Additionally, from the outside point of view, there is not a large amount of security to go through when coming in. Pretty much anyone could come onto campus, and if someone swiped them in with an ID, they could easily get into any dorm. A few incidents have occurred due to this, but the campus generally remains quiet.
