3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe to an extent. The community of Beaver Falls scares me as I know that there is a higher crime rate. However, where Geneva is located on College Hill makes me feel much more safe. The only concern I have is that our security guards tend to be a little bit older.

Health & Safety: There is no crime at Geneva. Safety is good and there is always security circulating our campus 24/7. Dorms are always locked. You need a Geneva ID to get into the building. Sexual assault is not a problem whatsoever on our campus and we are extremely well informed about sexual assault, how to prevent it, and how to deal with it.

Health & Safety: There is extremely little crime on campus. There has never been a time when I have not felt safe on campus. The security officers are responsible and friendly.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safety on campus is great, its a very friendly campus to go to and security there always makes sure that certain doors are locked after hours and they do are great job of walking through the dorms just to stop and check on things every once in a while and take time to actually talk with students and get their thoughts.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus nurse is in five days a week and does an excellent job with students. Residence directors are also extremely helpful in cases of health and safety and campus offers a wide rang of support groups for students who have been sexually assaulted or have health issues.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Geneva’s campus and surrounding area are as safe as you could ask for. Students routinely leave their laptops unattended in the library or Student Center, and keep their dorm room doors open, too. The red security SUVs are a familiar sight patrolling the area at any time of day, and while the campus offers escort services, many students walk confidently across campus alone after midnight, especially along the new, brightly-lit pedestrian walkway. Incidents do happen, especially when walking the alleyways of College Hill, but common sense and traveling with friends wards off most dangers. Beaver Falls, just down the hill, has a reputation for being a rough neighborhood—and it is—but with a little common sense, it’s really not so bad, and most inhabitants are quite friendly.

The Nave Infirmary, home of Geneva’s Health Services, is a walk-in clinic run by two registered nurses from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. every weekday, with a nurse on-call 24/7 in case your issue doesn’t accommodate those hours. The infirmary is equipped for infections, illnesses, and injuries of all kinds, with a generous stock of OTC (over-the-counter) and prescription meds. Students who come in with a sniffle leave with enough cold medication to cure them and their roommates. A doctor is available by appointment for cases needing prescriptions or advanced care. All cases are, of course, confidential. For smaller cases, student health coordinators live in each residence building. If Geneva’s services aren’t what the doctor ordered, both a MedExpress and a hospital are within a 20-minute drive.
