4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The Health Center sucks, I went for an appointment when I was sick and they told me over the phone I didn't sound ill enough to schedule an appointment. I went to my normal physician and needed to be put on antibiotics. Safety has been a huge improvement since the beginning of the year, and they take it very seriously.

Health & Safety: we have our own police department, which are great officers. safety is a very important thing on our campus. theyre always looking for ways to improve

Health & Safety: There's no reason to be unsafe on campus as long as you make good choices. Call the Safety Cruiser if you feel like you need someone to take you somewhere rather than walk. I wouldn't suggest walking anywhere alone, especially at night. But the campus is very well lit, during the day there are always people out, and even late at night there are people around if you needed help. Again, I wouldn't suggest walking alone, but if you had to you would probably be okay

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus regardless of what time of day it may be.

Health & Safety: The crime rate at Bradley is not high. However, the area surrounding Bradley is very sketchy and I would not feel safe walking home alone from an off campus party, back to campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students disagree about campus security. Some say they never feel threatened, while others won't walk alone after dark. The campus is completely open without gates, and while students are comfortable to go about being an unwary college student during the day, some people are on alert at night. West Peoria, where campus is located, isn't the best part of the city. Crime is common in surrounding areas, and police sirens are frequent. However, the Bradley University Police Department watches over the campus and keeps most crime away from the school. Though there are some burglaries at off-campus houses and cars, the police keep watch and deter many crimes, and statistics mirror those of "safe" campuses. Emergency phones are easy to come by at Bradley and are simple to spot. A bright blue tower houses the phone, so students can see them from a distance. There is also a student patrol, made up of several students who walk around campus Thursday through Saturday nights, and they'll escort students home if they don't feel safe.

Students are required to use their student ID swipe cards to enter buildings, including dorms, after certain hours in the evening. This ensures that no outsiders can get in. Bradley also has an emergency communication system. If something dangerous were to happen on campus, students can opt in to receive a text message telling them what is happening and what to do. There would also be information on Bradley's website and a phone number students can call for updates. Administrators are also in the process of getting loud speakers in all campus buildings—some already have them—to alert students of campus emergencies. Overall, there's more talk about security issues than real threats.
