There is plenty to do you just have to get out and do it. I feel safe most of the time being in a city. When I moved into a house right outside of campus the Campus police greeted me and welcome me to the community, he was at the house next door having his picture made with a life-size cutout of the Dos Equis Man. The school is close to Virgnia Beach.

There is an abundance of clubs, organizations and activites to choose from. And if you can't find a group that interests you specifically, you can start one. Campus safety is pretty reliable, it's the outer area that isn't the best.
