5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: McGrath can be very good and sometimes mediocre depending on the situation. You can always see the campus police patrolling the area, and the blue emergency poles are very helpful if you ever feel unsafe, though I've never met anybody who has felt unsafe on campus.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: Campus crime is very low. I have not experienced any unsafe conditions on campus what so ever.

Health & Safety: Campus police are literally EVERYWHERE, 24/7. They're pretty chill when it comes to not pulling you aside when coming back from parties; they're there to make sure you're safe. The health center is okay...but it's in the most inconvenient spot on campus, away from everything else. Kind of a pain if you're sick and have to walk uphill just to get help.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: not aware of any crime

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Our neighborhood gets a bad reputation, but I still feel pretty safe.

Campus safety is a high priority for the administration at Xavier, and it shows. Campus police vehicles are on frequent patrol 24 hours a day, and everywhere on campus is well lit, so one can take a midnight stroll without being accosted (unless you're into that sort of thing). The University has in place emergency call-boxes throughout the campus, so that if there ever was any trouble, the campus police are able to respond fairly quickly. As long as you are on Xavier University property, you feel relatively safe. While neighboring streets are not quite as pristine, there seems to be a heavily-enforced bubble that keeps those who live and work at Xavier safe.

The campus police do everything within their means to make sure that everyone on campus can live, work, study, and play in a safe environment. Unfortunately, with crime problems in the surrounding communities, especially Norwood, there is only so much the University can do. On campus is one of the safest places in the county you can be, but unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the streets outside of Xavier, where many students live in apartments and houses.

Did You Know?
Campus police sit in their cars with the lights off at night in the parking lots to keep watch. There were problems of break-ins in the past, but the police force has been extra vigilant as of late. You can read about all their busts every week in the campus newspaper, the Newswire, which has a section devoted to humorous and interesting police notes.
