4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Generally, students tend to excel when they feel safe. It is pretty safe to move around campus at any time with the presence of security.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus security is great. If you don't feel safe walking around you can call campus security and they will escort you to your destination.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus security works very hard to keep everyone on campus safe. There isn't a whole lot crime or anything like that but it happens occasionally just as it would anywhere else. On campus we have stations scattered outside where if someone doesn't feel safe walking outside, they can go to the nearest station and request to be escorted by campus security. Overall everything is pretty great from my perspective.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: There are crimes that happen around campus, but there are also a lot of cops patrolling around the campuses. They are even walking around campus to see how things are going. There are booths on campus too where there is a telephone where students can call if they feel like they are in danger. I see cops driving around all the time to make sure the students are safe.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I believe the campus does a great job to protect it's students and they offer a lot of protection to students and providing services through security.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Due to the diverse student population on campus, it is hard to spot someone out of place, so Campus Security, try as it might, does not do as well of a job as other schools. While Security has many services, such as emergency blue lights and an escort service, there have been complaints that its phones are always busy. Most security officers are work-study students who are majoring in law enforcement, and if there is something seriously wrong, you can count on them. Security also responds fairly quickly when someone pushes the button at an emergency blue light. There have been sexual and physical assaults on campus, but the perpetrators are generally caught quickly, and the school is very good about letting students know about these kind of issues.

Security in the dorms is extremely good. In the newer dorm buildings, such as Julia Sears, Crawford, and McElroy, the side doors are card-access only and the front doors lock at 11 p.m., so students need a MavCard to enter their dorm and floor. In older dorm buildings, such as Gage Towers, students use their room keys to get into the building.
