how safe are most colleges?
okay...we've all heard of violence on college/university campuses.
but if people are anything like'd never think it would happen at your school.
but recently at my school, last weekend, there was a kidnapping and a stabbing all on the same weekend.

do you think that is just an isolated incident or is it something I should be scared about?
so basically I'm also asking, do most colleges/universities have their share of violence?

I think they do, mainly because your dealing with all kinds of drama. I mean you have to be passing your classes, thats stress. Alot of times schools are like governments and like ripping you off, so you will have to pay more, or not be getting your financial aid etc... I know my school people are hating the staff completely because they are incompetant retards, even the professors/teachers are complaining about it.

In otherwords some students cant handle this and let it build up then that one thing makes them burst.

Then their are schools like mine where the ghetto decided to surround it and every once in a while the ghetto breaks into the school to see how nice it is, ends up causing trouble.

my school is in the nice area of town but it's in the Greater Toronto Area, which I guess contributes to the violence.

a lot of people are ****ed off at the school for moving Social science and Humanities faculty downtown and I guess they ****ed uo because one person got kidnapped right in front of one of the buildings, and who knows what else will happen.

the faculty gets ****ed off at the staff a good amount here too, with the prices and they can be incompetent here as well.

you bring up a good point, stress could make people more miserable and could cause them to do stuff they wouldn't normally do.

it's just kinda scary when someone gets stabbed in a place that's supposed to be safe and someone gets kidnapped in front of where most of your classes are

Personally I never looked at my schools to be safe. I looked to be around friends that would jump to save you if something did happen, but other than that there is nothing stopping these kids from doing stuff.

Now that I think of it its super easy for anyone to walk on my campus with a gun lol. You dont even have to go to school there, just carry a binder and some paper to camo yourself. We even had a gun run onto our campus with a gun and hold out in one of the areas with choppers and swat all over the place lol.

it would be harder to get into the building where my classes are because security asks for student ID usually since my classes are downtown, they try and prevent people from walking in but security has been getting kinda lazy lately with asking for id.

I usually rely on walking in groups whenever I go anywhere because most of my friends would help me.
