Hey dipspit. Nobody in Greek afraid of anything. We have crime but we deal with it. We don't always call the cops because sometimes we dont hafta because we take care of it ourselfs. Mind you own freakin buisiness. We dont need mommy and daddy to protect us nor no cops, so stay out of it. Were big boys.

Your whole blog is bogus...half the stuff you posted don't even make sense. And regarding safety, yes, Charlotte has a high crime rate. So many safety procedures have been set in place, especially on campus. The school made sure to educate students right from orientation about how to be safe and resources they have available to be safe on campus AND off campus. They stressed several times to use the buddy system when walking on campus. They have safe ride available if you are alone at night, stations where students can call for help in case of emergencies, campus security constantly patrolling, as well as phone numbers for campus security which they specified to program into our phones. They even gave us suggestions on how to defend ourselves in case of trouble. After attending UNCC for several years, I have noticed its the students who decide not to make use of these resources and make stupid decisions like getting into cars with strangers. I have never been let down when I needed help on campus after dark. It's always scary to walk around ANYWHERE after dark when there are not many people around. You are stating problems that are seen on any college campus. Students need to be more aware and use the resources they are provided properly. In my time here, I have struggled a lot with health problems and such and this school made my journey a lot smoother than it would have been. Every student's experience is different whether it is at UNCC or any other school. And every organization has flaws. What does it say about you when you made a whole blog post just to sit there and post negative things? I've read several posts on your blog and the worst part is that you don't even have your facts right about certain things. So stop spreading negative things especially when you don't know what you're talking about.
