5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: One of the most interesting things is I can leave me $1,000 laptop computer sitting open in a building, walk out to go get lunch, return, and it has not been touched. The combination of the strict, single-sanction honor system ("A Cadet will not lie, cheat, steal, nor tolerate those who do") and the level of mutual respect and brotherhood makes VMI one of the safest campuses in the country. Campus crime is virtually nonexistent, and I have never once felt like my person was in danger. That being said, the close quarters and lifestyle of VMI has led to some animosity between certain individuals, and although it has never caused a violent physical altercation, it has led to some fairly mean pranks and practical jokes between people.

Health & Safety: The honor code makes most crime/sexual assault not heard of. There are a few cases of theft, but that is the worst I have heard of before.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The safety and security of our campus is not the best.

Health & Safety: This school is incredibly safe. Accountability for all students is taken twice a day, and there is even a guard team led by cadets and headed by different officers serving on the Commandant's staff. Safety is taken very seriously at VMI.
