3 College Senior

Health & Safety: In my two years at William Paterson there has been countless theft and break ins. This worries me because I sometimes have to take night classes where I am walking out to my car alone. There is a major lack of security at night, when I feel there should be more during these hours. In my own attempt to protect myself, I always call a family member or friend when I am walking out to my car at night.

Health & Safety: The safety and security on campus is generally safe. The Police do show up when there is a problem on campus or if someone is caught drinking in a dry building.
