The Safest College Towns in America - New Jersey and Pennsylvania College Towns

Posted by Joseph D. Lento | Feb 24, 2016 | 0 Comments

A recent study analyzed the most recent crime statistics reported to the FBI by colleges and universities nationwide under the Clery Act.  (The Clery Act requires schools that receive federal funds to report crime statistics on or near campus.  Federal funds will be withheld and schools will be sanctioned if they fail to do.)  A list of the top 50 safest college towns was created based on that information as well as safety measures and initiatives taken by each school.  Sometimes we have to take "lists" with a grain of salt; nonetheless, a number of college towns in New Jersey and Pennsylvania ranked in the top 50.  An abbreviated list of the top 50 safest college towns in New Jersey and Pennsylvania follows:

9. Princeton, NJ - Home of Princeton University

11. Slippery Rock, PA - Home of Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania

17. Clarion, PA - Home of Clarion University
