3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The CDC leaves something to be desired, but there is so much social safety that it makes up for it somewhat.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I had a hard time deciding between a two or three out of 5 on this section. New College is an open, public campus beside an airport and on a major road, which has led to some issues of people tresspassing on campus, sneaking into parties, and stealing things. Generally, I feel very safe here. New College is a pretty safe community amongst students, although there's a tendency for items to be stolen in public places like the library. We have a police station on campus for quick response to any emergencies, so that's good.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: New College is very safe, and they provide endless resources to help students remain healthy and safe on campus. This is something we do very well.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I personally feel safe but it could be better.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: One great thing about this school is the CWC, I will give it that. When new college drove me crazy I went to speak to one of their conselors and she pretty much saved my life and for that I am grateful. In terms of sexual assault I have not heard of their being a huge problem with it on campus, probably because if you are accused of it then the SJWs will chase you away with pitchforks, not that I disagree with that if you are guilty of it but I have heard of false accusations happening and people's lives significantly impacted becaus of it. But know if you are sexually assaulted here you will have a place to go and people to help you.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

By pure statistics alone, one can easily see that New College is one of the safest campuses in the country. Few college campuses are home to unlocked doors, unattended laptops, and students walking alone in the middle of the night without fear. It is common for students to leave their supplies and books unattended in the library carrels. There is a communal feel on campus that gives one a sense of security and is attributed to the involved student body. The campus police don’t patrol the area looking to get people in trouble—they are friendly and will always help those in need. People feel at home at NCF.

In the rare instances when there are threats to safety, there are always RAs on duty who respond to calls promptly. There are also blue emergency call towers located all over campus, directly connected to the campus police. The lack of red tape at New College makes it easy to file complaints and discuss important matters with the administration. Speaking to a police officer is never daunting, and issues are treated seriously and respectfully. The relationship between students and campus police is overwhelmingly amicable and congenial—students all acknowledge that to ensure a safe campus, they must work together.
