3 College Student

Health & Safety: The campus police are always patrolling the campus so it's generally pretty safe. There have been a few cases of assualt and vandalism but overall it's pretty safe.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: i feel safe when i am not alone

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The way media perceives the school is really over dramatized. Crime around school is usually locally. Security here is strict and the campus closes off at 6. It always good idea to walk in groups outside of campus, but walking alone is not that bad if you are on campus
