4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe on campus.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I believe that a place is as safe as you make it. That being said I feel safe on campus but I also know how to take care of myself and not get myself into bad situations. I can also defend myself.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As far as a college campus goes, crime rates are relatively low.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Not a lot of crime happens, but if it does it is taken care of quickly.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: I personally don't feel very safe on campus when I'm not traveling in a group.

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.
