The part of San Francisco that Hastings is in is called the tenderloin and considered to be ghetto. There are several areas around the school where the homeless stay and sleep at. There are tons of mentally ill people who wander the streets talking to themselves or screaming and cursing at random people. There are tons of drug addicts using and buying drugs on the cross streets. There is a lot of criminal activity going on and student are victims some of the time to assault, battery, and robbery of their phones and laptops. The bike area often gets stolen from. The campus is safe though because each entrance has a campus police officer and each person entering must show ID to prove there members of the school to prevent the wide range of currupt residents transients and homeless from aging access to the school. The police also send texts immediately after any crime is committed. The area is unsafe and I disagree strongly with the schools polucy that the police are not allowed to have guns. They need to be able to protect us from the vikebce and dangers of the people. The people who live around are not heathy having mental illnesses, disabled, addiction to drugs, lack if food, bathing, and shelter being homeless. The campus is clean and sanitary and students are well and happy but there are some students with disabilities that make education challenging.
