IOWA CITY, Iowa - A new survey shows that most University of Iowa students feel safe on campus. The study, conducted by IowaWatch.org in collaboration with a group of UI journalism students, surveyed nearly 700 students to reach its conclusions.

"To see the results and see that students feel safe on campus was very uplifting," said Chuck Green, UI director of public safety. "We like to say our campus is relatively safe because you really cannot predict everything that might come about."

54 percent of the students polled reported feeling very safe, 43 percent said they felt somewhat safe.

"I feel like crime is kept under control here and I've always felt safe here," said Ross Friedman, a UI graduate student from Pennsylvania.

The University offers rape awareness and defense courses as well as violent incident training to faculty, students and staff across campus, Green said.

"I'd say over the last several years [violent incident] training has increased," he said.

The survey also found that more than half of students support the current ban on the concealed carrying of guns on campus.
