So far today we’ve learned that it’s expensive to stay here, we don’t read books that often, and now here is the worst one of them all: On a list of the most dangerous colleges to go to, UPenn and Temple took the top two spots.
The list was complied by Elite Daily, and takes into account various crime statistics from the last 3 calendar years at the schools. Here’s how they stack up:
>>>Murders: Temple – 1, UPenn – 4
>>>Negligent Homicides: Temple – 0, UPenn – 0
>>>Forcible Rapes: Temple – 34, UPenn – 27
>>>Non-forcible Rapes: Temple – 0, UPenn – 0
>>>Robberies: Temple – 192, UPenn – 176
>>>Aggravated Assaults: Temple – 97, UPenn – 40
>>>Burglaries: Temple – 747, UPenn – 117
>>>Car Thefts: Temple – 56, UPenn – 28
>>>Arsons: Temple – 1, UPenn – 0
Although outscored by Temple in every category except murders, Penn still took the top spot on the list, probably due to the fact that the attendance is lower. The list was rounded out by (in order, from least safe to safest) Columbia University, Johnson & Wales University, Washington University in St. Louis, Morgan State University, Rutgers University-Newark, Harvard University, Tufts University, and University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. You win this one, Drexel.
