WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A new report names Purdue University the 12th safest campus in the country.

The National Council for Home Safety and Security ranked the schools based on the FBI's uniform crime reporting.

The school’s safety score was calculated by analyzing crimes reported by universities, including rapes, robberies, assaults, burglaries, motor vehicle theft and arsons. Schools with insufficient data were excluded.

The report lists Brigham Young University-Idaho the safest followed by Oakland University in Michigan and Northern Kentucky University.

Purdue is the only college in Indiana to rank within the top 100 and is number one in the Big Ten. Indiana University ranked 109. Ball State University ranked 157.
