3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The safety and security on campus is average. I believe that it is average because they get the job done but sometimes it takes them a long time to get to scence. There are always going to be some type of campus crime, some campuses have more than others but when it campus to Savannah State crimes there are occasionally some but not that many. I personal feel safe on campus when I have a couple of people with me.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

In reality, it is not safe to walk alone, so if you do decide to go out, utilize the "buddy system." Everywhere is pretty safe, except at night when people think it's OK to commit crime. The police service, located in between the Freshman Living and Learning Center (FLLC) and Camilla-Hubert, isn't the best, but they are working to ensure the safety of students. In addition, there are blue and white emergency call-boxes located throughout campus if a student is ever in danger. So to ensure your safety, be aware of your friends and surroundings.

Health care services (located by Payne Hall and the basketball court) is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Fridays from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. The physician’s clinic is available Monday through Thursday; sign-in time for seeing the doctor is at 5 p.m. sharp. There are also after-hour services provided from outside sources. Students should check the school website for the available providers.
