4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Have not felt unsafe on campus.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus is very secure. Every once in a while townies will come on campus and cause problems, but it's very rare.

The CMC "bros", however, can be a bit problematic when drunk (i.e. not super concerned about asking for consent). The campus security is active, but more needs to be done by the students to prevent sexual assault.

Health & Safety: Our therapy place is overbooked

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus is incredibly safe. Every once in a while a bike gets stolen if you leave it unlocked, though it's usually fine. Sexual assault is as much a problem as at any other college, although students here are very aware of it and active on issues of sexual assault. As a man, I can't speak much more on this, although I know some survivors haven't felt very supported by the administration.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus, whether I'm walking around with friends in the middle of the day or alone from the library at 2 am.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Claremont College students don’t think about safety on a daily basis for one reason: they don’t have to. From walking alone at night to leaving laptops out in the library, Claremont students forget that safety can be a concern.

All Claremont campuses are equipped with college safety standards such as the blue-light call-boxes, rape whistles, student escorts, campus security, and cooperation with local police. Dorms require an ID card to swipe in, and all doors have either lock and key or a punch code. The only safety complaints are the occasional townie that tries to crash parties. But thanks to security outside almost every party, incidents are rare. Parties are safe because they are almost always on campus, which means safety precautions are always taken.

The town of Claremont/Village is so safe that students feel comfortable walking by themselves at any hour of night. If there was any safety problem, it would be petty theft. Most CMC students are comfortable with leaving laptops out and bikes unlocked, which has ended poorly for some. Even so, Claremont is small enough that computers and bicycles are usually recovered.
