Health & Safety: I always feel very safe and there are emergency boxes that you can make calls from if you feel threatened.

Health & Safety: Most of the campus crimes are from burglaries and happen when students leave their car or dorm room unlocked. Sexual assault is taken seriously and there are very few incidents, less than three a year. Campus safety officers are approachable and capable of answering questions/concerns. Wolf Alerts are practically useless, since any crime committed within State's grounds doesn't get disseminated until way after the fact, and people usually get information from Yik Yak, Twitter, or the news.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

NC State considers safety a top priority. The campus grounds are dotted with blue-light emergency phones, and Campus Police offers an escort service for students. Despite their positive role on campus, though, they're often shown disdain by the students because of their role in monitoring underage drinking. Another common complaint is the massive number of parking tickets distributed.

Bicycle storage and dorm entrances are also not very tightly secured. All dorms are locked, and students are supposed to verify their residence in a dorm using their IDs or call a room using the speaker phones outside the hall, but the majority of the time, students let one another in, regardless; there are usually no security guards around the dorm entrances. Many bike racks are near dorms and classroom buildings, and after a bike has been stolen, a student's only recourse is to file a report with Campus Police; there is typically nothing the police can do, unless someone saw a suspect. Overall, students feel that Campus Police have the right priorities, but there is room for improvement in a few areas.
