    Crime & Safety at Greeley: It rarely occurs in this area and I don't ever here complaints about it.

    Overall Experience at Greeley: Everything is nice and my siblings and I have a lot of friends around here that we talk to and it is very convenient for everything in this city.
    • 3
    Crime & Safety at Greeley: Crime seems to be a lot worse outside the campus. Safety is a big issue, because students do not feel comfortable walking around alone, because of the amount of people who act menacingly on the streets.

    Overall Experience at Greeley: The college is really what brings a lot of positive change to this neighborhood. I believe that if the school was not here in Greeley, then the neighborhood would decline in nearly every heading. There is a lot of gang violence here in Greeley, and the streets are not safe enough to be comfortable walking around alone. The university provides lots of safety, for students and the city. Because of the school, new residents are cycling throughout the area, and new businesses open that are geared towards college students.I would not choose to live in Greeley, or this area again, although I continue to do so because of the education I am receiving here. It's hard to discern whether or not the neighborhood could be made safer, just because of the residents living in Greeley that aren't students. It seems that the majority of the influx of people in the community are students, not families, who are establishing residency.

    Crime & Safety at Greeley: Again, because I live on a University campus, everything is very well planned out for the safety of many students. There are many resources round the campus that allow us to call for help to to find shelter in case of anything. Not a day goes by without me seeing either a few security guards on campus or police driving around the campus.
