Reminder on what should you look for when it comes to college safety

"Students felt safest at colleges where alcohol was less important to the social life on campus." says liberalartscolleges.com. Students should not focus on what they think is the best party school and which one is the best social school. Students should focus on looking on the academics in the school. Something that can make the students feel the safest so that students can move forward in their academics.

What should be done?

What has changed?

Case students say the school has done a couple things to help them feel safe. They report improved lighting, more patrols and even a shuttle system for students after dark based off wkyc.com. Which is giving students more safety than before, now what we can look into is choosing the right school that has some safety up there compared to other schools.
