Health & Safety: The security on campus is laughable at best. The only security is a card to get into the dorms though door holding or asking someone to open it has a 9/10 chance of working. It is in a poor neighborhood, students run the security desks in the dorms. No cameras except in the lobbies of the dorms and usually go unchecked unless damage to school property happens. I do not feel safe in this school.

Health & Safety: Campus security does a good job and step in when needed.

Health & Safety: There isn't that much crime, but people need to take the problem of sexual assault more seriously, and stop blaming the victim.

Health & Safety: Always, always feel safe on campus! Augie also has a program called ACES that gives free rides anywhere on campus after 7pm (this is a lazy feature for guys and a safety feature for girls!)

Health & Safety: Our campus has a strong anti-rape policy. There are posters in every girl's bathroom with statistics and numbers to contact. We also occasionally get cards from pregnancy clinics in the area in our mailboxes. The guys I've meet, and also my male friends, are very aware of sex assault and rape and work to prevent it. I'm really impressed by this.

As for drugs, one of my co-workers, two years ahead of me, put it perfectly and simply: "People talk". It's very gossipy of who smokes, snorts, drinks what, and she said that dealers last only a few months, really. Have heard of people getting busted for pot, fined, but not expelled or anything extreme. Just confiscated.

Really, you've gotta be your own judge of what you want to do, what you feel safe with, and for the love of all things holy, be smart. If you do get into drinking and smoking, do so recreationally. No one likes that premature alcoholic you need to babysit at every party.

One thing I dislike is the library closes at midnight, which sucks because it's nice to take the building to upper campus if you live up there instead of having to walk through the forest in the middle of the night. Yeah, the path is lit, but it's still sketchy and it's worse in winter when it's freezing and there might be ice. If it is a far distance, like from a place off-campus, I'd say get someone to walk home with you - guy or girl. Company is good for everyone.
