Health & Safety

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I would say our campus is pretty safe. The campus police building is right across the street from the campus. Throughout the campus there are poles where you can hit a button and the police with show up extremely quickly if you feel that you are in danger or that you want an escort back to your dorm. At night, you will see police cars constantly patrolling around the campus. the dormitories are locked usually at all times, some buildings have classrooms in the basement but all dorms are locked by 5pm. An RA sits at a desk near the front door of the building weekdays until 12, on the weekends until 2am so they will be the first ones to know if there is trouble. No college is without crime, we do have them from time to time but they are usually off campus and if they are on campus, it's never in the dorms. Campus police can also be seen bicycling around the campus during the day (there are no streets for cars on the campus). They are friendly and do not mind talking to the students.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The University has always boasted a serious security program on campus. There are several blue-light emergency poles scattered around campus, and the response time is less than two minutes. The reasons for calling can be as simple as needing an escort because it's late at night, feeling uncomfortable walking alone, or an actual emergency. Security personnel walk the campus at night, and due to the active nature of Radford students, campus and local police patrol until the early hours of the morning.

An alert system installed on campus involves sirens, text message alerts, phone calls, and emails. Students can sign up to receive alerts to their cell phones and email accounts, as well as their parents' accounts. But, overall, Radford students say they feel safe walking across campus, whether it's in the middle of the day or at 2 in the morning. Police are often patrolling at night, and it is not unheard of to see them on a daily basis. University Police are actively involved on campus and in the surrounding city blocks.
