NEW YORK, Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- Living and studying in New York, the most diverse city of the United States, college students may have a lot to cope, particularly personal safety. For those at New York University (NYU), it is one of their top priorities aside from finance and accommodation.
"Not long ago, there was a shooting spree at the square in front of our university. Few of us knew about it, because it happened at night. The university sent e-mail to alert us. So, if you go out alone at night Adidas Spezial España , you must ask security staffer to escort you," Chinese student Wang Yun told Xinhua right before a new school year starts in early September.
GENERALLY SAFE AT NYU
NYU is a private non-profit research university. It was founded in 1831, with its main campus centered in Manhattan, the most diverse part of the diverse city.
Its students, especially those from overseas, have reasons to believe that they are mostly safe on campus, where security personnel and facilities are seen around.
"Generally speaking, campus life in the U.S. is very safe, particularly in New York. It is very safe in most colleges like NYU Adidas Futurecraft 4D España ," said Wang Yuan, another Chinese student.
"It is very safe now at NYU. There is one security point for several blocks, where you can stay for safety. Meanwhile, security staffers are all around," Wang Ruixing, a third Chinese student told Xinhua.
"After all, a lot of police are on patrol 24 hours a day. Emergency stands are everywhere. If you make a call, campus security will come to help you," added Wang Yuan.
OUTSIDE CAMPUS IS ANOTHER STORY
For NYU students Adidas Prophere España , the campus is almost paradise, but outside, danger lurks.
"One afternoon at the Washington Square when I crossed the park, one black man stopped me for either money or fight. He was finally subdued by the people around."
Except for truculent boors, drug-using tramps and gun-carrying guys are the ones that you have to eschew, added Wang Yuan.
Emergency occurs any time outside campus, then what is the best way to deal with it?
"The university protects us with overall security education. For example, if anything goes wrong around, we will receive from the university e-mail about common knowledge of security Adidas Dragon Ball Z España ," said Wang Yun.
Wang Yuan reminded that either boy or girl staying outside at night in places with few people, he'd better team up with friends, for more confidence and power.
Meanwhile, there are purple lights on roadside for security calling. When you feel unsafe, just push for the lights and NYU security will be here to help you.
