4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Personally, I feel very safe on campus. However, I'm not sure of what public safety does in case of an incident.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The safety and security on campus is really good. There are swipes to get into all the dorm buildings and off campus housing provided by the school. I feel very safe on campus because it is mostly well lit and there are call boxes that are everywhere, and if you ever feel unsafe, just push the button and public safety will be on their way.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Security is good at Arcadia. Students are required to swipe identification cards to enter every building. There are cameras all over campus, and Public Safety is a visible presence every day. They are very helpful when students accidentally lock themselves out of a building or room, although too many lockouts results in a fine. Overall, Arcadia is a very safe campus. There have been instances of theft and alcohol incidents, but they are taken care of quickly and efficiently.
