Health & Safety

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: A&M tends to be a little too relaxed with safety. I had a friend who was assaulted at a party after getting drunk, and I can ensure you this campus does not properly speak up about date-rape and other crimes on campus. Also, campus police is always patrolling so nothing to serious will happen (like getting shot or openly mugged) its mainly just what goes on behind dorm rooms that is the problem. I don't recommend going out alone at night however; large groups or walking with a friend are O.K.-but just remember this IS college.

Health & Safety: The safety and security is very important on this campus. We don't have campus crime. Personal safety have happened a lot lately because students tend to take things that don't belong to them. The police stay on call 24/7 for every little thing that a student do. I feel somewhat safe on this campus.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I attend campus only during daytime hours and ranges from 8am to 2 pm for my six course. I feel safe while I am there.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus police are always on there job. They make sure everything and everyone is safe and taken care of. They're pretty nice people once you get to know them and you're not the one in any trouble.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Police are always patrolling 25/8. Literally you'll get tired of seeing them

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Overall, campus is a safe place. There are campus police almost everywhere on campus, so students don't really have to fear that they are in an unsafe place. However, it is still wise for students to be cautious at all times. The best advice to girls is to never walk around campus alone at night because A&M is an open campus, so anyone can drive on campus at any time.

Even with campus security, it's hard to determine if someone off campus is a student and supposed to be on campus. Young women need to be careful when they are walking around campus late at night. Travel in groups when it starts getting dark. It is definitely better to be safe than sorry.
