5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. They put a lot of effort in making it a safe environment

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: there is safety on campus because the department of public safety is very effective and the police works in collaboration with the department. There are many resources to help students who do not feel safe on campus. I think there could be more escorts at night from the department of Public Safety but it is also students' responsibility to follow the given advices about going out at night.

Health & Safety: Campus is safe. There are blue security phones wear people can call anytime and get a campus police officer to come to their location. The Metro Bus is also free for students and offers a late night shuttle to the nearby apartments so no one has to walk home alone in the dark. I feel safe on campus.

Health & Safety: I feel it's safe around and on campus.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I love that there is always at least one or two public safety officers around and I've heard that the emergency phones do work, which is comforting. There are still one or two rape cases a year it sounds like, and campus for the most part is well lit, but directly off campus is what scares me. A lot of the streets there are dark, theft is still a big issue off campus, and there's a lot of crime happening pretty close to campus south of University Avenue.

Overall though, I feel pretty safe on campus, it's just immediately off campus that I'm worried about.
