Incidents per 100 students
Local crime is weighed less than campus crime in a school's overall safety ranking. Each city's safety ranking is based on the same categories that are displayed for crimes that take place on campus.

The campus crime statistics published on StateUniversity.com are compiled from crime reports submitted by college/university law enforcement between January 1 and December 31, 2014. College safety ratings based on campus crime can be a useful tool in evaluating a college or university; however, these safety ratings only provide part of the picture. Before making a college decision based on campus crime reports, students are advised to consider other factors, such as overall crime in the neighboring community. Local organizations and law enforcement may be able to provide such additional information.
