4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus is a nice place to go and to explore. The security on campus is impressive. There is a Penn State police station. Emergencies are easily reachable. There are students out on the campus ground which makes a student feel much better.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never questioned my health or safety on campus. We have a Health and Wellness center along with a police station on campus.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I have walked around alone at night feeling very safe.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: From my understanding, it is fairly safe on campus. I don't get emails or texts about sexual assault, etc. I haven't heard of any stories where something bad happened to someone.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I think the safety and security on campus is great on campus. There have been a few instances where I felt unsafe but I think law enforcement did a great job taking care of the problems. Campus police take their job very seriously which I think is a great thing because it makes everyone feel very safe.
