Something tells us you didn't ask how safe the campus was on your college tour. Maybe you should.
The world around us is changing and even walking down the street is not as safe as it once was--or we would like it to be.
And while we may feel like college is an isolated little bubble, college campuses are not always immune to crime. Nowadays most colleges have specified police departments to help protect students and faculty. Many also even offer an escort program to walk you from building to building.
If that kind of protection makes you warm and cuddly inside (or at least appeases Mom), this Huffington Post list is your deal. These colleges go above an beyond creating a safe environment for their students:
- Arkansas State University – Beebe
