Health & Safety: Its the best only because i am not a target

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The school does everything it can to prevent crime. Things happen, but the school goes above and beyond to prevent.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus and around the city. Also I feel like I can maintain my health, stress levels, and sleep while attending this school.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The school has a great alert system that automatically notifies you when something happens on campus. We recently hired a security guard at the library who will walk you to your car at night if you're scared to walk by yourself. We also have a security shuttle that will transport you anywhere on campus at night.

Health & Safety: Everyone around is extremely trustworthy. I truly believe that we are a family. On the rare occasions where i walk home alone I feel very safe. Their are many amenities around for those that do not like to walk home alone.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students agree that they feel very safe at Auburn, especially on campus. Like any other town, Auburn has its bouts of crime, but students advise that if you take the necessary precautions, your time at Auburn will be a safe and enjoyable one.

Because of Auburn's friendly atmosphere, it may be
easy to take safety for granted. While Auburn is an
overall friendly and safe town, you still shouldn't let your guard down, especially when out late at night. Some students take the transit system if they are traveling at night; others call on the police escort service if they feel uncomfortable in a certain situation. The city of Auburn, as well as the University, does their best to make sure the citizens and students in Auburn feel well protected and at ease in this town.
