3 College Junior

Health & Safety: i wish i felt safer

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: It is not fair to pretend that things do not happen on campus however the school has a great police/security presence at all times. As a woman I have never been afraid to be alone.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The school definitely puts a heavy emphasis on the issue of safety. Certain protocols on campus are incredibly helpful, however, the campus police are not the most effectively and are the main reason someone would not feel safe there.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is not enough parking at Rowan which means I and many others leave class very late at night and walk to our cars in a mostly empty, dark parking lot. There should be safer parking for night class students.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Health and safety at Rowan is one of the best features of the university. I always feel safe no matter what and the police and security that patrols the campus are especially nice and helping no matter what

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

All in all, Rowan is a pretty safe campus. Although parts of Glassboro are a bit seedy, it is pretty rare that students run into trouble with townies. However, when calls of distress are made, Public Safety arrives in a relatively quick amount of time. In light of past crimes that occurred on and near campus—there were some assaults and robberies within the last few years, including a beating death—Public Safety has become more militant in its protection of students. Since most assaults were committed by non-students, Public Safety has been strict about allowing non-Rowan students to enter campus. In addition, dark walkways have been lit, and more patrolling has taken place. Plus, there is an escort service offered to students that provides walking escorts, as well as a shuttle service, so students don't have to walk anywhere alone. Maintaining your safety on campus is not that hard, as long as caution is exercised in every situation.

The Rowan health center is conveniently located right by the library. The nurses and doctors who work there are very helpful people. They provide free vaccinations and help students overcome any kind of sicknesses. A non-profit agency, FamCare, provides sexual health services at the health center, including women’s exams, birth control, and STD testing.
