4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe while on campus. Some areas off campus are not nearly as safe, but as long as you are on campus you'll be fine.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: If anyone is feeling in danger they are more than welcome to call Campus Safety to take them where they are going. Overall the campus s pretty safe but the town around it is not as safe.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Albion College is definitely a safe school. Campus safety offers rides to students at night to and from parties or from classes to dorms. The number of incidents at Albion is amazingly low and the college stresses safety greatly.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It is just like any other college town, don't walk by yourself at night, be smart. I have never felt unsafe here. Campus safety is always available and there are lights all throughout campus if at any point you feel unsafe you can go to and call campus safety at.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They have CamPo (Campus police) and they do a pretty good job, they will be there is you really need them. But, the town is a little sketchy so I would not recommend walking alone late in the night, a couple of people have gotten mugged doing that.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

With Campus Safety officers constantly roaming Albion's well-lit campus, it is rare that a student feels unsafe. There have been a few incidents of violence and crime in the past, but as long as you care about and are aware of your safety, you shouldn't have a problem. Campus Safety officers are more than happy to accompany students home at any time when they may feel unsafe. It is also a good idea to travel in groups, whether it be from a frat party or a late-night study session. You just need to be careful.

There have been some complaints in the past few years about women's health issues and the sexual assault policy on campus. Health Services is generally good about women's health and offers birth control and gynecological services, but they do not offer any form of emergency contraception on campus. Albion's sexual assault policy is "no tolerance," and while some students feel punishments should be harsher for offenders, the College does make an effort to aid sexual assault victims. The Anna Howard Shaw Women's Center offers free counseling and a free sexual assault services hotline for all students in need.
