5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Although being placed on the South Side of Chicago, the projects have been taken down defeating a large portion of the threat towards campus. The rest is taken care of by our private police force armed, ready to serve and protect. There are some bad reviews on the public safety force but it mostly consists of negligible things like 3 guys being scared to walk a half mile to the dorms late at night or something along those lines.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Public safety is actually pretty great. They are everywhere but its mostly to keep 'the locals' out. The locals being gang members and muggers that you would expect to find on the south side of chicago. Public safety is pretty chill, they won't get you in trouble if you are drunk and are generally pretty cool to talk to.The health department is full of morons on the other hand.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There's a special department that takes care of that. Even though I have not been here long, sexual harrassment or assault are very rare in terms of the people at school. If you're wandering off campus at one in the morning than anyone can get raped.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: IIT's public safety unit is what makes this campus the safest in the city of the Chicago. They heavily patrol campus on foot, bike, and patrol cars. They also provide an escort service on and off campus. Additionally, there are emergency buttons sprinkled around campus for students to push if they ever feel in danger. I have never felt unsafe walking around campus at night and all of the sidewalks are well lit.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The security of this school is incredible! There's easy access, and many options available. There are incidents, but no security is impenetrable.
