What’s the safest college campus in Maryland? According to one study, it’s Bowie State University. Security system ADT has announced the safest college campus – for those that have at least 5,000 students – for each state, based on four factors: hate crimes per enrolled students, violence against women per enrolled females, property crime per population, and violent crime per population.
The study only looked at the main campuses of public, private and non-profit colleges that offer two-year and four-year degrees and have at least 5,000 students.
Only 435 total schools met that criteria. The data was taken from studies by the U.S. Department of Education’s Campus Safety and Security Analysis and the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report.
This is the third year ADT has done the study.
