4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Michigan students and staff members are very forward, liberal thinkers and have multiple programs set in place for sexual assault prevention, as well as support systems for survivors. Health and Safety are taken seriously here and I've never felt threatened in any way. Unfortunately, sexual harassment and assault is still prevalent, as it is on college campuses, but I don't think it's an overtly prevalent problem. It's hard to eat healthily, but the freshman 15 is easily avoidable. Walking around campus conquers the extra Mojo cookie you ate.

Health & Safety: I feel safe, but I don't go out much at night or on the weekends. I guess I wouldn't feel comfortable walking alone at night especially around some of the frats but I don't really do that. There are means the University provides to help that problem like saferide and stuff, but sexual assaults do happen. Also, a lot of stuff gets stolen so you have to keep it with you as much as possible. I think that it's hard to feel safe 100% of the time as a young woman on a campus with such a strong party culture but only in certain areas and the university seems to be committed to preventing sexual assault.

Health & Safety: There are posts set up everywhere, so students can call if they don't feel safe. A campus security person will go to them in that case. They email us anytime a crime happens on campus, and I haven't received an email in nearly two months. I feel safe throughout campus and the university works to keep that feeling.

Health & Safety: I feel sort of safe. There are groups and centers for assault victims. Its ok I think.

Health & Safety: I feel safe, but sometimes it may seem scary walking alone at night. I always recommend being in groups.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors
Ann Arbor is a relatively safe city, but like most cities, there are occasional instances of crime. Whenever a crime is committed, every student receives a "Crime Alert" email, providing a detailed description of the event in an effort to prevent further instances. Though Ann Arbor is monitored by DPS (the University’s Department of Public Safety) as well as Ann Arbor's Police Department, students should avoid walking the streets alone late at night. A number of services exist to help students get home after hours. In terms of health, the University Health Services receives a lot of criticism. Scheduling an appointment is nearly impossible, and if you arrive without an appointment, you run the risk of waiting hours to receive care. If you need medical assistance, don't bother trying to schedule an appointment unless you can afford to wait a week. Your best bet is to head to the emergency room or find a ride to Ann Arbor's Urgent Care Clinic.
