Northwestern Michigan College Students React to Oregon Shooting

College students here in northern Michigan are reacting to the Oregon shooting tonight.

Northwestern Michigan College students say they feel very safe on the Traverse City campus.

You can see blue emergency lights all over campus that NMC students can use if they feel they’re in danger.

But as safe as they feel, the shooting is a reminder that bad things can happen anywhere.

“It’s kinda crazy, seems like it’s happening a lot more now than usual. I guess being at a community college it’s kinda weird because you definitely don’t expect that to happen here,” says Kyle Neibauer.

“Traverse City is generally a safe place but you never know. It only takes one person to, you know, cause some damage,” says Conor Lynch.

NMC also offers security escorts if students say they don’t feel safe at night.
