Campus Safety

By: Taniela, Damyen, and Ethan


Summary

When the three of us had teamed up and decided on the topic of this project a current event that was
happening was the school shooting that was in Florida. This then inspired us to ask and start an analysis on
the safety of our own campus and how safe its constituents feel about it. To do this we did the following…

● Came up with 6 questions that we thought had high importance and could best help in giving a clear
conclusion on how an average student felt on campus.
● Each [individually] asked a total of 6 students that were in different years their opinion.
● Finalized results and analyzed the data that was collected.
● Made suggestions from that data.
Script:
“We are surveying students on how safe they feel on campus for our English class. Your response will be anonymous
(unless you wish otherwise) and it will only be used for this class, so no publishing or anything like that. Would you like to
participate?”
● Survey questions:
1. On a scale of 1 to 5 how safe do you feel on campus?

2.On a scale of 1 to 5, 1 being the lowest how familiar are you with the procedures in case of an emergency?

3.On a scale of 1 to 5, 1 being the lowest, the middle being unsure how high do you think the crime rate is around campus?

4.Do you think there is a better way to get lobo alerts in case classes have a “no technology” policy?

5. Do you know where the campus police building is?

6. How do you think safety can be improved on campus?

*NOTE: ALL ANSWERS THAT WERE AND ARE GIVEN ARE FROM PEOPLE THAT CHOSE TO REMAIN ANONYMOUS .

Participants recommended we use intercoms and give the professor a personal notification rather than lobo
alerts.

6. “How do you think safety can be improved on campus?”


Most participants mentioned to include more surveillance cameras on campus and more on foot security.
