On the whole, Wellesley students feel very comfortable on campus, largely due to the efforts of campus police. The bells system is under fire from those who say it's unnecessary—it's a system left over from before the dorms were locked, but now they are—and those who argue that it is not strict enough—bells coverage can be spotty. The Horizontal-Vertical rule is supposed to keep unescorted guests from roaming from floor to floor, and while stray men are usually rounded up quickly, female guests can move without problems. Occasionally, a rash of thefts occurs, but serious crime is almost unheard of.
Many students wonder whether serious crime genuinely never happens on campus or if the administration excels at keeping things quiet. Wellesley has always seemed very safe, but there are enough stories to realize that problems may not always be acknowledged. This is detrimental because Wellesley can seem so idyllic that some students think nothing of wandering around the arboretum with headphones on in the middle of the night. Though Wellesley is very safe, prudence should not be abandoned just because you are inside the Wellesley bubble.
