College campuses tend to be fully equipped with security precautions to protect the large amounts of students that walk their grounds from early in the morning to late in the evening for night programs. In past history, unfortunately, we have seen some college campuses that have had to undergo such horrific events that discourage students from going to those specific places because of repetitive accounts. However, according to the students at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, they feel differently about our school’s campus.
“I feel safe because it’s a really small campus and I see some security guards. I think a key factor of safety is the size and that Dearborn tends to be a safe and quiet place,” said freshmen Aanand Patel.
“I just feel safe because it is a familiar area and there are so many ways out if there was something to happen,” said freshmen Ruby Issa. “Also, there are enough parking spaces to accommodate classes, especially when you walk out from night classes late.”
“I do hear about the dangers of a college campus, but at the same time I feel safe, especially because of the community we are in,” said freshmen Wesam Haddad. “I feel really safe and comfortable even leaving my belongings with someone in the UC, if I have to walk away for a few moments.”
“I definitely feel safe because of the UMD security guards are always around and I always see them,” freshmen Sarah Sebai.
