3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is not really any crime on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It is not the best but it is not the worst. I feel we need more of security presence on our campus. I feel we need more lighting when we're walking back from night classes, and I feel that is a very serious issue that has not been addressed. Anyone can access to our campus, so I think we need more surveillance. I had to go to the police office to report a crime, and the T.V. was so loud that they could not hear me knocking on the door. I feel our security should definitely be addressed.

Health & Safety: Wesleyan College is located in a urban peaceful area. There are not many safety issues, but if a situation occurs Wesleyan's security is always present and can be easy to reach on campus.

Health & Safety: polices on campus all the time to make sure everything is okay, and there is a nurse on campus who can perscribe medicine for you if needed.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Wesleyan is a very safe campus, thanks to the work of the police chief and officers. Students feel safest in the residence halls because the outside doors automatically lock after closing. Therefore, only those with keys to each residence hall can open those doors. Room doors also lock automatically as an extra precaution, ensuring a secure environment from thieves or unwanted guests. The only unsafe areas are the woods/arboretum trails after dark; however, students feel comfortable walking around the rest of school grounds because campus police patrol campus in 45-minute rotations every hour and are available 24/7. Health Services consists of a family nurse practitioner, who can treat minor injuries and illnesses, and a physician that is available by appointment. Other services available to students include flu shots, pap smears, and informational programs on health-related topics.

College policy requires all traditional and residential students to have health insurance for each academic year. For students without personal coverage (HMO or PPO plan), they will be provided with Pearce and Pearce Insurance by the College and charged an additional fee. Individuals who have coverage that extends to the Macon area can easily waive the fee and continue to be on their own plan.
