Never Lock Your Doors Page 9
Top colleges that are so safe, jaywalkers are the biggest felons
What the students are saying about:
Wellesley is an all-girls school well known for creating a safe environment for its students. The affluent suburb of Boston in which it resides perfectly suits its academically driven students. “I found Wellesley to be a both a stimulating academic environment, but also a safe one that I always returned to when I needed to focus. It does feel separate from the rest of Boston.” “Because you feel safe on campus, as a woman, you come to feel an intense sense of ownership and connection to the place.” Theft on campus is virtually non-existent. “Living at Wellesley I feel extremely safe. Students leave their dorms unlocked. Theft is not an issue on campus.” This was a common refrain: “The campus is really safe- a ton of people don't lock their doors.” For an all-girls school where academic excellence meets an overwhelming feeling of safety and security, Wellesley is hard to match.
