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.
