    UNH (University of New Hampshire) is a party school in Durham, New Hampshire. Unless you have a vehicle you won't get to many games. Durham is known as a college town. Been there, done that

    Several articles in the past year about crime being under-reported at BYU for fear of being hauled into the Honor Code office. I suspect BYU-Idaho has similar circumstances. Under-reporting helps the ranking.

    USU will never be completely safe until they get rid of their football team, (just look at this past year and how many articles were about football players raping or committing crimes.)
    They made a lot of progress getting rid of some of the frat houses, but they could do better and get rid of the remaining ones. Until then, I won't recommend anyone send their kids there.

    I have to question the methodology for this study that lands an atmosphere like Pullman, Washington ahead of communities like Logan or Provo. Washington State is one of the biggest party schools known.

    USU is currently safer, that is the answer, no need to spin it.

    The College Formerly Known as Ricks is a wonderful place to go to school. And a very safe place.

    Students need to take an active roll in their campus safety. Evaluate routes to and from school. What are your walking, biking, car driving & parking conditions. Vary times and routes. Be with friends and other students. Women should not take night classes alone. Even men should consider taking night classes with a friend. After hour activities like sporting evens, dances, concerts, and parties need to be with groups. Nothing can eliminate all of the trouble in your environment but you can minimize it.
