3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: SLC does have sexual assults but what I think makes our school better at handeling them is the transparency. As soon as the school gets notified of the assult, students get a blast email with information telling them what happened and where to go if they need support or have information.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I think the college does great with dealing with sexual assault issues. The school is very progressive which means students feel very strongly about these sorts of things and always want to help anybody that has dealt with it.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The powers that be are very concerned for the safety of the students and the general legal health of the campus.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We all feel pretty safe. Occasionally there are high school students who harass students along kimball. There have been a few incidents of students being egged but it's taken very seriously. We have a sexual assault task force and good, open dialogue around assault on campus. Everyone takes a mandatory seminar on it within the first week and promises they'd never hurt anyone but at least 30 assaults happened on campus this year and most of them were student-student incidents.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: Security cares about the wrong things. They care about penalizing pot smokers and kids who forget their keys, but will defend our disgustingly corrupt administration and student groups to their death.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

That bizarre buzzing sound you heard at 3 a.m. was probably a security guard circling campus in a Honda Pilot. Security guards are a familiar, reliable presence, and the numerous emergency towers make it easy to contact them if you’re in trouble. Students agree that the campus feels safe, but its urban surroundings can get creepy at night. Nervous about walking around campus after dark? Catch a ride with the student shuttle. Unfortunately, security can’t always be in the right place at the right time, and students have been victims of harassment and robbery on the streets surrounding the campus. The best plan is to avoid traveling alone and to stay off roads such as Kimball Avenue unless it’s absolutely necessary. On campus, crime largely revolves around students who make the mistake of leaving their belongings unattended or their rooms unlocked.

Health Services is a mixed bag. The options are comprehensive, and you’ll be treated nicely by a staff of kindhearted professionals. But the cramped, outdated building that houses Health Services spells inconvenience. They don’t have room for a full laboratory, meaning no HIV testing, nor do they have space to hire more nurses, meaning you’ll be in the waiting room flipping through magazines for a long time if you don’t make an appointment.
