Map: 3 of Country's 15 Most Crime-Ridden College Campuses are in California
For the country's hundreds of thousands of college students, their campus is their home, or at least a home-away-from-home. And like in any community, crime happens on campuses. Degree Scout put together an infographic spotlighting the kinds of crimes reported on campuses, and this map that shows on which campuses property crimes are concentrated.
California is home to not only three of the top 15 campuses for crime, but to the top campus for crime, the University of California at Santa Barbara. Head north to UC Berkeley for the number four campus, and then back down to SoCal, where USC comes in at number 13. And, hey, Trojans, guess what? You beat that other "USC" on this map, this time too; the University of South Carolina shows up at number 14.
*We, too, are noting that there are some puzzling geographic errors on the above map; regardless, hopefully we can encourage dialogue on the larger issue of crime on California's college campuses, and not immediately dismiss the data behind the map as faulty.
