UM named one of safest college campuses in Alabama

Montevallo was named the safest college campus in the Birmingham metro area, ranking #4 for the state of Alabama.

Niche.com recently released rankings for the 2018 Safest College Campuses. In recognizing the 15 safest colleges in Alabama, AL.com reports “The rankings are based on a variety of factors, which include crime rate on campus property per 1,000 students; crime rates of surrounding area; reports of residence hall violence; alcohol and drug-related arrests on campus; and student surveys on safety.”

The 2018 Safest College Campuses ranking is based on key statistics and student reviews using data from the U.S. Department of Education. Top-ranked colleges offer a safe and healthy environment with little or no campus crime, drugs, or alcohol usage.

Statistics obtained from the U.S. Department of Education represent the most recent data available, usually from 2015–2017 along with self-reported data from the schools. Niche has the most comprehensive data available on U.S. colleges and universities. They rigorously analyze data from the U.S. Department of Education and more than 30 million college reviews and survey responses to help students find the right school for them.
