I lived on-site and always complained about safety concerns at night. One of my friends was sexually assaulted on-campus. The teachers do not care. http://www.hercampus.com/life/campus-living/sexual-assault-campus-are-colleges-universities-doing-enough

I stand by my decision to go here. Every class I have taken has been beneficial and eye-opening. The people, for the most part, are very friendly and kind. The overall atmosphere on campus is welcoming.
