Any student you ask will say he or she feels very secure on campus. With a strong presence by Public Safety and a campus in a safe neighborhood nestled in a quiet suburban area, there is little to worry about. There are hardly ever incidents even worth mentioning, and when they do come up, such as a fight or major theft, Public Safety usually deals with them quickly. Outside of that, the security policies for entering and exiting buildings are fairly lax, although the freshman dorms on South Campus tend to be strict when trying to enter the building after visitation hours. Generally, though, with a quick show of the WildCard, there shouldn’t be any problems. Laptops are the most common things to be stolen, but even this only happens on occasion.
Public Safety does come down heavy on student drinking, and they have been known to ask students to see what’s in duffel bags being carried around at night. For something like that, they are quick to fine you and take the disciplinary action the school requires, but for most other things, they tend not to have such a heavy hand. So, while they are strict on underage drinking, they do keep a safe atmosphere around campus and allow students to be pretty much worry free walking around late at night.
