This is a small school and most everyone knows everyone else. It's generally safe and there is always little to no loitering that goes on around campus. All academic and student buidlings are typically open as well as the campus chapel, if shelter is needed.

However, there are negatives. Sometimes the main acadmic/adminastrative building has locked doors for no speicifc reason, and there has been a number of staff members who have been charged, fired, and/or arrested due to sex-related crmes or charges over the decades. Most notibly (and ironically), is the campus safty director who was fired and arrested on suspension of child pornography. However, this was an off-campus situation and there weren't any reports of him attacking anyone on campus or anything. The entire student body recives constant emails to any type of potential threat (including weather), which I have found helpful and comforting.
I came from a neighbourhood and high school in which there is a great number of diversity and non-white students. Thomas More College proved to be somewhat of the exactly opposite and so, for anyone like myself who is used to being around more minority rich schools, it can be somewhat of a culture shock. There are a number of minority students and foreign exchange students, but they are far outnumbered by the white student population. There haven't been any nefarious plots of hate or racism going on and students and staff are generally respectful and friendly to others regardless of background or culture. There is also the Culture and Diversity club that often has events and activities centered around inclusion, representation, of and education on different races and cultures. There is a moderately good enough mix of races within the student body, but unfortunately, there is only maybe one or two non-white staff members if that (including the administrative offices, student life, and campus safety offices), which some may find unfair or uncomfrotable.
The campus itself is a "Tobacco Free Campus" and there are reminders everywhere that you will be charged and have consequences if you are caught smoking. I have personally only heard of one instance where a student brought hard drugs to campus (crack cocaine) and he was immediately dealt with the first week of school. Other than that, it's oddly a pretty drug-free school save for the occasional whiff of marijuana from some students.

Alcohol is prohibited from the dorms and campus. Dorm safety checks are done periodically to check for any substances as well. Campus events typically just have pop, water, and other non-alcoholic drinks. However, art gallery openings often have wine and beer which are offered to anyone around at the time of the event, sometimes unmonitored, and are easily assessable to underage students.

There is virtually no peer pressure to do drugs or drink, and students are generally respectful of those who are underage and/or simply just chose not to drink.
