5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Have never felt unsafe once on Auburns campus. If you go to the med clinic for a note to get out of class with a fake illness they will probably tell you you have mono though.

Health & Safety: Like everything at Auburn, it is not great nor bad.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I generally feel safe on campus, but I never walk alone if I can help it. The security shuttle makes everything a million times better, but sometimes they can take up to an hour to pick me up.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The safety and security on campus is, in my opinion, held to a high standard. We have a program called AUAlert that will send emails, texts, and phone calls whenever something happens whether it be bad weather, an assault, or anything in between. There are also posts scattered around campus that have a "help" button if you are in danger. We are taught in Camp War Eagle (orientation) that if we are in danger, we can run from one post to the next to make a trail of where we are so it is easier for police to find us. You can also see another post from the post you are currently standing at. We also have a night campus bus that can be called and the drivers will take you anywhere on campus for free. I am extremely scared of most things and being on campus is one of the most comforting places I can be. I have never been scared or felt threatened on campus. The police have quick reaction time whenever things do happen, but that is very rare.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Every college had a few incidents, but our campus is very safe.

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.
