5 College Student

Health & Safety: I feel safe and secure on campus. There is a police station between the arena and trojan center. There is also a help button on the stop signs to insure safety of others.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Many dangerous people have been found on campus, they have easy ace's to some buildings that do not require a key fob.

Health & Safety: The protection and safety on campus is really good. Since I've been here, no out brake of crime or suspicious activity had occurred on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There's been a few instances first semester of my Freshman year- and rumors that more have been covered up- but I (a pretty, feminine-looking woman) walk alone at night all the time and haven't ever felt like a victim. There's a lot of buildings everywhere so I think screams could be heard pretty easily.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Health and safety is heavily promoted on campus. Campus police officers patrol campus 24 hours a day, and there are tons of safety services on campus, including E2Campus, a notification system that alerts students and faculty to emergencies, alerts, and even weather advisories. The Troy University Police Department also offers the Operation ID program. Just bring valuable personal items to the safety office, where they will be marked and logged into a system that will help if the item is ever stolen. This attention to safety also extends to the dorms: Residence halls can only be accessed with a key fob and all guests in the dorms must be signed in and out and escorted at all times by their host. Also, the Resident Housing Association informs students of the dangers of domestic violence during the month of October.

Troy also takes the health of its students very seriously. During flu season, students are encouraged to go to the health center on campus to receive a free shot. Some student organizations also promote health and safety issues. For example, the African American Alliance informs students about sickle cell anemia, breast cancer, and Human Papillomavirus (HPV).
