Health & Safety: At my school Florida Career College, we have some of the amazing security officers that not make sure your vehicles are not vandalize, they also patrol around the school and help out any student or anyone that need to find any building they may need to go. I feel very secured and protected my school knowing we have them their and also we have police officers from time to time that ride around the parking lot also.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I only feel unsafe on Florida College's campus when walking alone at night. Otherwise, I feel very safe on campus. Florida College is small and strict about who is in the dorms. Florida college doesn't allow drinking on their campus, so any issues with drunken students disturbing the peace is eliminated. Florida college also does not allow any weapons on campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The crime problem most often encountered on campus is theft. Several students each year find things to be missing from their rooms, cars broken into, or unattended items stolen from hallways. For the most part, however, students feel safe and protected. The security system at FC is low grade but meets the need of watching out for students' welfare. The surrounding neighborhood is a low-crime area, even though Temple Terrace and the greater part of Tampa are higher in crime levels.

For safety measures, the school keeps a watchman on patrol at night around the residence halls, and the whole campus is well-lit. Students have a curfew, after which the doors to residence halls are locked. The newer dorms also have special swipe-card access, rather than the use of keys. The security system at FC is minimal, but so is the crime. So far in the school's history, there has never been a problem with school shootings or other dangerous crimes, but theft occurs frequently. Students can easily avoid being victims of theft if they keep their doors locked and do not leave their items unattended.
