Skidmore's Campus Safety is a 24-hour resource on campus. Commonly referred to as "Campo," Campus Safety officers patrol the campus day and night via the Campus Safety vehicles. Their presence is certainly known, but not overbearing. The officers are there to help you more than to get you in trouble, though it is Campus Safety who breaks up on-campus parties. Students can call Campus Safety for a range of issues, from a personal safety concern to helping too-drunk students to just helping get into an apartment if a student is locked out. Most students feel safe walking around campus alone, though some students feel more comfortable walking in groups. The campus is generally well-lit, and there are blue-lights in multiple locations around campus. Students generally feel safe about their belongings on campus; it is common to leave your belongings in the library while you grab lunch.
The health center is open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (closed between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.), and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. (walk-ins only). Health Services offers many services, including immunizations, men's and women's health, medications, and a nutritionist. Some students feel as if Health Services is mediocre in quality, but it certainly has a lot to offer in services.
