4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The Idaho Falls campus is a lot smaller than the Pocatello campus. I feel safe at both campuses. I've only had day classes at the Pocatello campus, but I can see how it would be scary to walk a far distance alone.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I always feel safe and secure wherever I go on campus. I don't ever worry about being a victim of sexual assault.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never had to deal with health and safety on my campus

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safety and self-defense classes offered on campus. Zero tolerance policy for crime and assault.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I only feel safe walking around when it's day time.

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.
