TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A local university ranks among the most dangerous colleges in America according to an online web-based group called Business Insider.
The group conducted a recent study ranking Indiana State University 13th in the top 25 most dangerous colleges.
The group looked at schools nationwide and averaged FBI crime data from 2011.
Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana ranked 12th on that list.
Even with the ranking, ISU Police Chief Bill Mercier says those numbers include crimes such as larceny, which are not necessarily violent or dangerous crimes.
"Most people who live and work and go to school here, find this a pretty safe place to be," Chief Mercier said. "Generally, if you talk to folks, you'll find that most of the people who are here are pretty comfortable and this is a relatively safe place to be."
The web group released a follow up case study that revealed a different set of data utilizing the Clery Act. It features numbers that the colleges report to the Department of Education, and those numbers don't include theft.
In that report, Indiana State University, nor any other Indiana school, appears.
