As parents send their children off to college or university, students’ safety is top of mind. Despite recent shooting investigations in and around Carbondale, two Southern Illinois University Carbondale football players said they weren't worried going into the new academic year, because SIU hasn't had a shooting incident on campus where someone was hit. The SIU Police Department said there was one shooting on campus in April, but no one was injured. The university did lose a student to gun violence in 2021, but that happened at an off-campus party.
