Take a taxi. Many years ago, a classmate walked to the station in a group of 3 and were "attacked" by a group of 9 boys. Things may have changed but I will still take a cab.

At that time of night I would take the bus or a taxi at least to Chapel Street. If you are talking the main campus, it is a long walk... It is just the first few blocks that are dicey. Once you get to Chapel you should be OK. If you decide to walk it I would stay on State Street till you get to Chapel as it is always fairly busy and well travelled by police and cabs.
