College-Bound Freshmen: See Which Colleges are the Safest in Your State

When it comes to crime, North Carolina boasts zeros straight across the board—in the best sense. Not a single school in North Carolina’s top ten safest colleges reported a violent crime in 2019. Read on to see the top ten safest colleges in North Carolina. While you’re at it, see how they stack up to the safest colleges in the country.

Methodology

To determine the safest colleges in each state, we analyzed Uniform Crime Report and Campus Safety and Security data for schools that meet the following criteria:

  • 5,000+ students enrolled
  • Two- or four-year degrees offered
  • Public, private, or non-profit institution

From there, we analyzed three factors to determine our rankings:

  • Violent crimes per 1,000 people
  • Property crimes per 1,000 people
  • Hate and VAWA (crimes against women) crimes per 1,000 people

Interesting Findings

  • North Carolina’s average violent crime rate per 1,000 people among the top ten safest colleges in the state totaled zero in 2019. Also impressive? Each school in the top ten averaged a hate and VAWA crime rate per 1,000 people of only 0.23.
  • Appalachian State University has one of the lowest property crime rates per 1,000 people: 14.80—57% lower than the state’s top ten average.
  • University of North Carolina Wilmington provides an app, LiveSafe, which offers several features, including an SMS texting system that connects students directly with UNCW campus police.
  • North Carolina A&T State University offers a digital crime map to help students stay alert and safe from crime. Despite the safety resource, though, A&T doesn’t seem to get much action. In 2019, AT&T State had a hate and VAMA crime ratio per 1,000 people of 0.11 (and a violent crime rate per 1,000 people of zero).
  • The name “Cape Fear” may suggest something scary, but both Cape Fear Community College and Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College didn’t report any hate or VAWA crimes per 1,000 people in 2019.
