3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They will definitely test you for mono if you come in. Guaranteed.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Sexual assault is taken very seriously on campus. Students are encouraged to report sexual assault and there are easily accessible support services for victims of sexual assault. There is little to worry about in terms of safety and campus crime. Hamilton is very safe.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's a prevalent topic of discussion, people are aware of the problems and want to prevent them.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Haven't had many dealings with those matters.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Counseling services are the best!

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Hamilton College might be one of the safest places in the world. Or, at least it feels that way. There is plenty of security for a small school in a very rural part of central New York. Blue emergency phones and alarms are clearly marked and decorate the campus grounds. Campus Safety’s staff is very visible in the dining halls and driving around campus. There is a switchboard operator available all night to take calls, and at least one safety officer is driving around the school checking on everything.

Although it irritates many students, the safety officers' job generally entails handing out parking tickets and breaking up parties that get too loud. While it is annoying, it says a lot about the relative safety on campus. There are so few real safety threats to students that safety officers have the time to make people turn down the volume on their stereos. Some might say that diverse groups on campus are at risk for some unwanted attention at times. Racial slurs are quite rare, but the campus does harbor a few students whose behavior is unfriendly toward the gay, lesbian, and transgender community, although only a handful are publicly out on campus.
