5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is always about two or three campus officers on site at all times. I have always felt safe here. There is very little to no crime at all that takes place here on campus.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: It is a very safe campus.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The security and students are very cautious about everything going on.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: This school seems really really safe. I feel like I am out of harms way at the school.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: So, there have been a few incidents with Campus Safety in the past. There have been people who were sexually assaulted, and Campus Safety swept it under the rug. Also, there have been a few break-ins this year that easily could have been prevented, but Campus Safety only ever rides around in their little golf carts giving out tickets. There was an instance in Traer with a student who had a gun, and everyone saw the police show up, but Campus Safety did not communicate what the problem was to any of the students. We are not informed about incidents, which I do not like. The Campus Center does host events, like Green Dot Training, that help inform the students about what to do in an emergency, but it is not enough

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Oglethorpe generally feels safe, which is especially unique because it's in a big city. Patrol officers are always present on campus, and the campus itself is surrounded by a gate. The efficiency of both could be improved, but they still provide students with a feeling of security. In any case, besides a few works of thievery, there really isn't much crime on Oglethorpe's campus. Violent crimes are unheard of, and students can walk around without fear, even at night.

As for health concerns, there is a nurse available on weekdays. Her hours aren't always the most convenient, but she's very helpful, and there is also a doctor who comes in once a week. There often are sample giveaways of useful objects, from tampons to pamphlets dealing with diseases. A student can arrange for his/her prescriptions to be sent to a nearby pharmacy, and can see the nurse when ill in order to get an excuse from going to class.
