Business Insider, The Most Dangerous Colleges In America:
The FBI's Uniform Crime Report identified 2,696 violent crime incidents and 87,160 property crime incidents on and around college campuses in 2011.
We ranked the most dangerous colleges by averaging FBI crime data per capita from 2008 to 2011 for schools with enrollment over 10,000. Schools were ranked based on a combination of violent crime rank and property crime rank, with violent crime weighted four times higher.
I'm going to send this to my son to make him even more paranoid about crime. A female student was already mugged outside his dorm last year. Interestingly, I don't see either USC or Tulane on the list, both schools where I would have thought crime would be a problem. --TS
