Health & Safety: its an extremely safe campus. Campus safety does do their job though but most will understand that we are college students and sometimes don't make the best decisions. As for sexual assaults, I am unaware f any students who were blamed for their own assault but I'm not really sure.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Outside of thefts and drug-related incidents, there are not many crimes on campus. There are a few arrests made each year, but the majority of them involve intoxicated students, minor thefts, and vandalism. However, about once or twice a year there is a sexual assault on campus, which reminds students that no college is completely free of dangerous crimes. Most of the thefts that do occur are preventable, as they involve students breaking into unlocked dormitories and vehicles and stealing the contents inside. Using common sense such as locking your vehicle and dormitory, walking in groups in well lit areas, and not allowing others to have your key will greatly diminish your chances of becoming the victim of a crime.

The Campus Safety Department has done an excellent job in reducing crime on campus in recent years, as they have developed several new policies to ensure student safety. Blue lights, escorts, routine patrols, and security cameras all add to the safe atmosphere on campus, and the local police department frequently visits the University as well.
