The 25 Most Dangerous College Campuses in the U.S.

Nice Move

The list was compiled by Business Insider. It shows our country’s 25 most dangerous college campuses.

The FBI’s Unified 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.

So, here is the list. There are a few eyebrow-raisers in there.

25. Florida State University
24. University of California — Riverside
23. Arkansas State University — Jonesboro
22. State University of New York College — Buffalo
21. North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University
20. Western Illinois University
19. California State University — Fresno
18. Rutgers University
17. Northern Arizona University
16. Massachusetts Institute of Technology
15. Southern Illinois University
14. University of Cincinnati
13. Indiana State University
12. Ball State University
11. Georgia Institute of Technology
10. Louisiana State University
9. University of South Alabama
8. University of New Mexico
7. San Diego State University
6. Vanderbilt University
5. Florida A&M University
4. Duke University
3. University of California — Berkeley
2. New Mexico State University
1. University of California — Los Angeles

      How is MIT surprising? Boston is pretty dangerous. I’m a senior there right now and 3 weeks ago there were 2 people found at the bottom of the charles river chained to cinderblocks.

    I’m surprised Yale isn’t on the list. Remember those murders that took place a few years back? New Haven has never been very student-friendly. It’s weird but when you look at it, basically every elite academic school is located in a shitty town. And how is MIT on it but not Harvard? They are in the same town.

    Georgia Tech is a stone’s throw from Grady Memorial Hospital which has the distinction of seeing the most GSW’s in the South.
