Crime Related


Apparently, Saint Joseph’s University is having a bit of a crime problem these days. An SJU student was shot early Sunday on the corner of 54th Street and Wyndale Avenue. Just last week the dining hall was robbed at gun point. I think its time for SJU to beef up their security measures.
I don’t feel comfortable walking the campus at night. There are hardly any students around and security is very scarce. I think people are starting to notice the lack of security and therefore, have decided to cause a little havoc. I have friends that say they were attacked while walking to their car by a group of kids. While an education is very well needed, so is your life.

    It’s funny, I’ve never felt unsafe at St. Joe’s. I’ll certainly be a little more cautious now that I’ve read this, though.

    this is hardly new; i guess it’s getting out more though. i went there 10+ years ago and security was a big issue. the difference between the lower merion side of campus and the phila is amazingly sad, and the neighborhood has definitely worsened over time. there is a reason for that big stone wall.
