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.
