Health & Safety: During the day, Mars Hill is a great campus. During the night that all changes. Mars Hill has hardly any lights throughout the campus so it's extremely dark. There are maybe 5 total security buttons/phones around the whole campus. This does not make me feel safe walking through campus at night alone, or even with friends. Many sexual assault cases have happened just within the short years I've been on campus. Majority of the time nothing happened to either person, just counseling which doesn't help at all.

Health & Safety: Security on campus is about average, nothing really stands out and makes it better than your every day security measures.

Health & Safety: I feel as though they don't do enough and they are more worried about making money off of people.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel really safe because everyone is there for you if something does happen.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safer in a group, I try not to go anywhere alone in the dark
