3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel fairly safe of campus because it is such a small campus, but around the outskirts of campus there is crime every now and then, but campus safety is very good about doing something about it and notifying the student body so they can be on the lookout of something or someone suspicious.

Health & Safety: "A" for Campus Safety, "F" to Health Services... Campus Safety does a great job of keeping its students safe and also develop personal relationships with many of the students, which further strengthens the motivation to protect us. However, if you are sick, you will probably not be excused from class because Health Services ONLY gives excuses if you have a fever of over 100 on the examination table. You can puke on the NURSE (not even a Doctor) and because you do not have a fever, you will not be excused. They will, however, write you antibiotics prescription for anything and everything, which is also bad because nurses should not be diagnosing and prescribing like doctors.

Health & Safety: Wofford's campus safety cares more about the health of the individual than the rules. They have a line that you can call at any time if someone is in medical danger because of drugs or alcohol (using this line gives you amnesty to prosecution for an AV). The Spartanburg surrounding area is a little shady though, so walking off-campus is a definite no.

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe. Not worried about having things stolen. Campus safety could do better however, it feels at times as though they are just there to harass the students.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus safety is very good about keeping the campus safe. I am never thrilled with Health Services.
