4 College Junior

Health & Safety: My campus' safety is very well maintained. I haven't encountered anyone who's been a victim of a crime or felt endangered in any way. Campus security is always driving around patrolling the campus grounds so it sustains a safe environment and it's easy to access telephones in case of emergencies or if one feels unsafe walking around at night.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never heard of a case so far.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Nothing really happens on campus. campus security is pretty good if you are on campus but not if you are in town.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is very safe and in a safe neighborhood. The school also supplies students with counseling if needed for mental health.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The security does multiple checks before and after midnight, they have a 24 hour office that you can call for emergency. The health center on the other hand is open from 9:00am - 12:00pm for walk in ans 12:00- 4:00pm for appointment ONLY! So if i break my ankle at 6:00pm I have to pay my own hospital and ambulance bill because their not opening the doors to help me. they are going home. they also have a message therapist who costs $30.00 for thirty minutes, but she has free sign up during finals only.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The most dangerous event you'll experience at Elmhurst is a skunk ambush. There are currently 0.68 violent crimes per 1,000 people in Elmhurst, making it one the safest suburbs of Chicago. Students can walk on and off campus anytime, day or night, with $100 bills glued to their shirts and be perfectly safe. The campus has emergency phone booths set up in a few areas if you feel like you're in danger, but most of them have cobwebs. Even if you're walking alone at 2 or 3 in the morning, the likelihood of a serious threat is very low. With the train station so close, a random outsider will occasionally hang around, but campus security usually takes care of this before too much trouble is caused. Keep in mind, though, that there is a higher chance of theft because of these outsiders. It’s unlikely that you’ll be mugged, but bikes (and even some cars) have been stolen. Other than that, you’ll feel perfectly safe but take the skunk advice seriously—when they’re walking straight toward on a sidewalk, it can be a little intimidating.

If you get hurt or sick, the health center is easily accessible. It has walk-in hours on Mondays and Wednesdays and is open every weekday until 4 or 5 (depending what day it is). The center offers testing, immunizations, and counseling, which includes massage therapy! It also has Band-Aids, condoms, and other minor self-serve health necessities in a side room that is not supervised.
