Female College Students

College is one of the most exciting new chapters one can have in their lives, but a big change comes with unpredictable big challenges.

What does it mean to be a female college student?

For most young girls, college is the first step towards true freedom as they move into adulthood, where they are expected to be independent. They often have to live with new people, away from their families, which can be an intimidating experience.

With the advent of their new college experience, female college students also need to ensure that they are safe and secure at all times, which in some extreme cases could be in a highly endangered environment without even noticing.

Safety concerns for female college students

As a young and smart college woman, you might already know about the safety concerns that you need to take into consideration. Despite cautious decision-making, there are times when you might find yourself in adverse circumstances which could be life-threatening.

Ending Up in a Risky Situation

Impulsive decisions to visit unsafe places such as shady bars and clubs or go on a hiking trip can land you in precarious circumstances.

Being near a criminal offender

It may happen when you least expect it, being near a criminal offender who might hurt you and put your life at risk.

Losing Your Way in a New Town

Being a young woman, nothing is more terrifying than not knowing where you are. And it gets worse if you don’t have anyone to help you out.

No Means of Instant Communication

Young students love to explore new places and meet new people. That's why you can sometimes get yourself into situations where you won't necessarily have access to a phone or internet.

Be in charge of your own safety.

Unsafe situations can occur anytime, anywhere. Take every step to ensure that trusted people can access the most important information that would help you in case of an emergency.
