WEB EXTRA: Students speak out on campus safety

Yale death generates discussion

After the recent slaying of Yale University student Annie Le, the issue of campus safety is on the minds of many City College students.

Le, who grew up in El Dorado County, was found dead in a Yale building where she did research.

Twenty-year-old City College student, Joe Ezakai, feels that campus police are the main reason why the students feel safe during the day, but feels their presence is lacking once the sun goes down.

“I see the security guards rolling around preventing any crazy shenanigans from happening, especially in the quad,” Ezakai said. “But I wouldn’t get caught alone in the parking garage past dusk.”

Ezakai is hesitant to walk alone after their evening classes. This is especially true when he is headed toward the dimly lit parking structure.

“It seems like they (campus security) are never over there. You gotta be watching out for yourself,” Ezakai said. “I carry pepper spray, and I’m a dude.”

Students on City College campus aren’t always feeling so safe on campus.

“Actually, not at night,” said City College nursing student Danika Tromley, 19, when asked if she felt safe on campus. “There’s not a lot of security, I don’t think. I just see one cop car.”

Although many students may feel safe during the day light hours of college, some see a concern in safety once the sun goes down.

Students in Sacramento feel safe, despite the highly publicized homicide investigation at Yale, according to one City College student.

Campus safety isn’t a concern at City College, according to Graphic Design student Andrew Van, 21, of Sacramento.

”No one tries to cause trouble here,” said Van, who drives to school for both day and night classes. “The people are very polite, very diverse,” added Van, who consented to a quick interview while waiting for a parking place to open up near the campus bookstore. “I don’t see any reason why people would feel brave or feel intimidated to come here,” Van added, before parking his sedan and hurrying off to an afternoon class.

The body of former Placerville resident Annie Le was found hidden in a wall at Yale.

Authorities have arrested a Yale animal technician Raymond Clark and charged him with the killing.

Student safety has allows been an issue but has reached new heights in the last decade alone.

This issue seems to little affect youths ,which could stem from recently leaving high school, a place that gives students a false sense that the outside world will always be kept at bay.

“Yes, I feel safe,” said City College student Michael Gonzales ,18. “It’s an environment that I can fully throw myself into.”

Gonzales feels the campus is an accepting, laid back place of learning.
