4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always feel safe when I am on campus. If I do not feel comfortable walking alone, I can call Campus Police to walk me to wherever I need to be. We also receive phone calls, emails, and text messages if something out of the ordinary comes up on or around campus.

Health & Safety: When it comes to being on campus, I am not often there in the evening hours. This is due to my status as a commuter student. If I am on campus at night, I feel fairly safe. The University of Scranton has a full police force to protect the "Scranton Family," as well as a group of student officers.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are student officers who make rounds very often. As well as campus police that will walk you back to your dorm after a night out or even a late night at the library.
