Recent polls have found that campus safety is an increasingly important factor in students' decisions about which college to attend. While every college campus goes to great lengths to keep their students secure, here are 2 different lists of the 10 safest college campuses.

The Daily Beast:

  1. Midwestern State University, Wichita Falls, TX

  2. Indiana Wesleyan University, Marion, IN

  3. Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, NY

  4. Idaho State University, Pocatello, ID

  5. Grand Valley State University, Allendale, MI

  6. Farmingdale State College, Farmingdale, NY

  7. Indiana University-Southeast, New Albany, IN

  8. Long Island University-Brooklyn Campus, Brooklyn, NY

  9. New York Institute of Technology-Old Westbury, Old Westbury, NY

  10. Cardinal Stritch University, Milwaukee, WI

College Prowler (Yes, sounds strange in an article about college safety, but they're reputable. We promise.) offers a slightly different list that includes smaller schools and even a few that aren't in either New York or the Midwest:

  1. Dallas Baptist University, Dallas, TX

  2. Michigan Technological University, Houghton, MI

  3. Wheaton College, Wheaton, IL

  4. Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH

  5. Fairfield University, Fairfield, CT

  6. Lee University, Cleveland, TN

  7. Wellesley College, Wellesley, MA

  8. Hamilton College, Clinton, NY

  9. Grinnell College, Grinnell, IA

  10. St. Olaf College, Northfield, MN
