3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: the security lets anyone in and doesn't check ids

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is always someone available for sexual assault victims. During oriention they also gave us a small lesson in what to do if we ever become victims or if we see someone who is about to become a victim.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Before entering college, we are asked to take a mandatory course based on prevention of irresponsibly drinking and alcohol leading to sexual assaults.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Iona is a secure place to be at all hours of the day through the presence of campus security. Cars from security are always driving through campus, and it can get annoying at times, especially when security chooses to flash its lights. The security office is located right in the middle of campus, so if a problem happens, students are able to find security quickly. There are also security phones located in different spots at Iona; at night, they glow blue, and students can press a button to talk to security if there is a problem.

Even though Iona has tight security and generally a safe surrounding area, students should still be responsible late at night on weekends. Students have to be careful because depending on how far you stray from Iona, you can end up in an unsafe area and lose your wallet or purse before you know it. Along with the safe environment, the dorms are protected pretty well because all residents must show their ID at the front desk, and nonresidents must sign in to enter the dorms. At night, campus security heads the front desk to deal with students and keep the dorms in order. Besides security, health services are offered at Iona, which include first aid for injuries, health screenings, vaccinations, and wellness promotion programs. The office is only open during the day, though, so it is not very helpful for students in the evening.
