Health & Safety: I've always felt very safe on campus. I've never heard of any problems regarding anything health and safety relatedon campus. It's very rare and safe.

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. There are booths with buttons to call public safety which you're encouraged to use even if you just feel uncomfortable walking alone. We're rated one of the most safe campuses, and that probably because no one does anything to put themselves in danger and there are so many ways to get help. Public safety responds quickly I've been told (never needed it myself). It's a well-lit campus with plenty of security if you use common sense and don't go into a dark alley somewhere. You have friends (otherwise you wouldn't be out and about at night), so just don't be alone. And don't be alone with anyone you do t know well. I shoved a guy out of my dorm freshman year who pinned my roommate on the couch in the living room because he thought they were alone. He tried to joke like it wasn't a big deal, but we never saw him again, so he got the message to "get lost."

Health & Safety: Once again, I don't know much about the campus. But from what I do know, Idaho State warns everyone when something is going on.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I believe that the safety on campus is good. I haven't heard of anything bad happening at school

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students feel safe on campus due to the high patrol of Public Safety and the few minor crime reports and just because of the laid-back campus ISU has. Pocatello is generally a conservative town with a low crime rate. Most crime reports are related to parking issues or fender benders. There really are not a lot of problems on the ISU campus.

Every now and then, a report comes out about some stolen computers, but there is not a lot for students to be concerned about. It is impossible to walk to class without seeing a Public Safety officer on patrol. Public Safety also offers numerous self-defense classes, especially for women. The scariest part for any ISU student would probably be the off-campus alleys. There have been reports of peeping Toms and stalkers, so women especially would be wise to walk with somebody at night, lock house and car doors, and be aware of what is going on around them when walking in alleys or streets at night. While Pocatello is a safe town, that does not mean students do not need to watch out for themselves and know what to do if something were to happen.
