(KAIR)--The safest college campus in Kansas.
That title was given to Atchison's Benedictine College by YourLocalSecurity.com, an ADT affiliate.
According to a press release from the college, the rankings are found using statistics from the FBI and U.S. Department of Education based on low crime rates and programs designed to provide on-campus protection.
These rankings take crimes reported by universities and place them into three main categories: violent crime, property crime, and violence against women. Each crime is weighted by severity to give a total crime score, which is then divided by the school’s enrollment to produce a per-capita score.
Vice President of Student Life at Benedictine, Dr. Linda Henry said in the release, “Safety is a primary concern for many college students and parents. On our campus, we have a great sense of community and safety. It is extremely important to us to make sure we do everything we can to help students experience their Benedictine College education in a safe and respectful environment.”
