3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are plenty of emergency buttons all over campus. We also have security guards.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I generally feel safe walking back from classes, but most girls are on their phones talking to someone.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel as though our campus is relatively safe. It's just like every other college campus, there's always a chance for something bad to happen, we can't prevent everything.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: My second year at West Chester University, there were a plethora of sexual assaults going on. However, my third year at WCU I saw a drastic decline in the amount of sexual assaults that have occurred. This shows me that the campus takes this issue very seriously and work very hard to prevent these situations from happening. Now, I feel much safer walking around on campus, day and night.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: They try. But they also fail.
