4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus is one of the safest in Georgia. The GC public safety is great and always willing to help. The health center is also pretty good, though they can be too willingly to hand out medicine that either you don't need or interfere with other medicine. Always check out the medicine that the wellness center gives you.

Health & Safety: The campus is swarming with cops all the time. I have only personally known one girl who was sexually assaulted on campus, but the counseling center was there for her through every step. Crime against students is pretty rare, but there have been cases of muggings over the summer. I feel very safe on campus, but as safe when I'm going to my off-campus housing. The best feature is the SNAP service that transports students to and from places at night. I think this has really reduced a lot of crime and helped with the reduction of drunk driving.

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus during the day, but not feel comfortable walking alone at night

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I personally feel very safe, because of the cell phone applications that are available, and the emergency boxes are cleary identifiable.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Safety is a no. 1 concern at Georgia College! It is hard to walk a block without passing a campus police officer driving or walking around campus. The campus and surrounding parking lots are well lit at night, but if you ever feel unsafe, a campus police officer would be more than happy to escort you wherever you need to go. Also, emergency buttons are located all over campus—in the event that you need help quickly.

The Public Safety building is open 24 hours a day, with officers available at all times. Public Safety also offers the SNAP service (Student Night Auxiliary Patrol), which provides students with a safety escort on a golf cart. This is a great service for late nights at the library! There are also emergency buttons located in every dorm room, which, when pressed, alert Public Safety immediately. Students at Georgia College have a great relationship with the campus police and are thankful to have such devoted officers.
