5 College Junior

Health & Safety: We always have campus security! They're great and easy to get ahold of.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Safest school I've ever seen. I never have to worry about my safety when I go for my nightly runs around campus. It is well lit, police keep campus very safe by pulling over all of the crazy college kids when they speed. I feel okay to walk across campus alone at night.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus is small and safe.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Never had a friend or myself with any incident.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We have never had a problem with campus crime, that I know of. There have been a few drug incidents in the dorms, like any university, but overall our campus is definitely the safest I know of. We have safety towers in place with buttons that contact campus police when pressed. I have never questioned my safety while on campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

When asked about campus security, some students said they would like to see more security or more of a security presence on campus. Those who live off campus are often concerned about walking back to their cars at night. There are not many emergency call-boxes on the way to or in the parking places. Some students will call someone on their cell phone, just so they have someone to talk to on the way back to their car.

All in all, though, security is present; it could just be a little more present. The main campus buildings and the parking garages can be a little scary at night. There are some emergency call-boxes, but there could be more.
