4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: we have had some problems on campus about crime, but I felt secure and safe on campus. they required us to have a walking buddy when walking at night and had hours that we had to be in the dorms, only for the short period of time in which the crime was going on. the security is very helpful and would do anything to protect this campus.

View student contributors
Newberry College has a great Wellness Center, and the needs of the students are very important. The Wellness Center has one certified medical assistant, and Health Services helps students with physical, academic, emotional, and social development. The Wellness Center also offers counseling with confidential assessments, individual and group therapies, and referrals to other resources on campus and within the community. The director of Counseling Services in the Wellness Center is a licensed therapist with more than 20 years of experience in the mental health field. Security at Newberry is taken very seriously. Their main goal is to enhance the quality of life on campus by working with the campus community to enforce laws, preserve the peace, help build self confidence, and work to provide a safe and secure environment on campus. Security is on campus 24 hours a day working hard to ensure your safety. Located in the freshman residence hall, security helps students by giving out their phone numbers in case of emergency and will provide an escort if you're injured or uncomfortable walking in the dark.
