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.
