SIUC ranks one of safest colleges in country

Southern Illinois University-Carbondale was named one of the 100 safest colleges in America. The school ranked 86 on the National Council for Home Safety and Security “Top 100 Safest Schools in America” list released earlier this week. NCHSS used data from FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting and the National center for Education Statistics as well as local crime statistics to decide ranks. The stats were weighted so violent crimes were more than petty crimes.
