With multiple instances of crime around campus each semester, Loyola students are sounding off on how safe they feel in Rogers Park. Although the North Side neighborhood is not the most dangerous area of Chicago, crimes near campus can still be alarming.
On Nov. 2 Campus Safety alerted students that one of their peers was robbed on North Glenwood Avenue, about four blocks west of campus. The student was not physically harmed, but it brings to mind the question of safety on and off campus for students.
“When I’m walking back home after dark I’ve definitely felt scared. Since I live north of campus it can get dangerous around there,” senior Katie Hoffman said.
