Rank the Ivy League Schools -- According to Campus Safety

<p>any thoughts? hit me with your list</p>

<p>Most safe: Dartmouth, Princeton
Least safe: Harvard, Yale, Columbia</p>

<p>Brown probably safer than Harvard but some more frequent incidents on campus recently at Brown. A recent thread on New Haven here suggests Columbia may be safer than Yale.</p>

<li>Penn, Columbia, Yale</li>

<p>this may help:</p>

<p>Columbia's crime rate is far lower than that of Harvard. In a 2003 Department of Education study, 27.6 out of 10,000 Harvard students were found to have been victims of violent crimes, compared with 14.8 out of 10,000 at Columbia.</p>

<p>wow...i never knew that penn and columbia had unsafe campuses</p>

<p><crosses both="" universities="" off="" list=""></crosses></p>

<p>... They are smack in the middle of Philadelphia and New York City, respectively.</p>

<p>Check Sac's post again--based on facts, not opinion. Columbia's crime rate is far lower than Harvard's. It is smack in the middle of one of the five safest precincts in NYC. Also, look at the link that alphacdcd provided.</p>

<p>Or just cross it off your list; lots of other folks will be glad to lose the competition! :)</p>

<li> Cornell</li>
<li> Princeton</li>
<li> Dartmouth </li>
<li> Brown</li>
<li> Harvard</li>
<li> Columbia</li>
<li> Penn</li>
<li> Yale</li>

<p>yale is really bad, at least one yale student is murdered there every year. columbia is down the block from harlem</p>

<p>Columbia is the safest Ivy League.</p>

<p>whoa...MAJOR difference of opinion here, what's going on?</p>

<p>Honestly, you aren't likely to get mugged or shot at any of the schools...</p>

<p>Many of the people who say that Columbia is unsafe are usually the ones NOT from New York, they tend to slap a negative violoent sterotypical image of NYC onto Columbia. It's understandable that many only have one day experience of NY or heard from word of mouth.</p>

<p>Go visit, you'll feel it immediately...there is usually a safe vibe you walk around it.</p>

<p>Then again, I might be biased ;)</p>

<p>"Honestly, you aren't likely to get mugged or shot at any of the schools..."</p>

<p>Really, then what about this:</p>

<p>Only n00bs copy and paste posts with shortened URLs and forget to fix the link.</p>

<p>people who use the logic to say that because something is in a city, it is therefore unsafe.... they...well, haven't been to a city.</p>

<p>Here is the correct link cited above.</p>
