4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There's always a security car nearby. Security's not really a concern I usually have.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safer on my campus than I could anywhere else. The campus police are always around, patroling the campus and surrounding area. You begin to recognize them throughout your stay on campus and quickly become friendly. There is barely any on campus crimes.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The University of Scranton is everything I thought it would be and more. Love it!

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Safety on campus is pretty normal, nothing really happens, although less then a block away, off-campus students have more to fear. Every weekend there is a community advisory reporting someone jumped, robbed, help at gun or knife point, and off campus houses being robbed. Last semester a non-student was shot and killed a block from my street.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: public safety is usually around
