Assault and Robbery on campus? Don’t be surprised. It is a fact of life.
Is a college’s campus safety your concern when you select a school to attend? If so, you should read further.
Don’t assume that criminal acts like assault and robbery don’t exist at the world’s best school like Harvard University or MIT. Please be aware of the fact that many top national universities in the U.S. actually have been listed as “Most Dangerous Campuses” and they are under FBI’s investigation. Several renowned schools are condemned by the media for how they have handled their students’ criminal cases, especially sexual assaults.
If a student committed a crime on campus, it should be treated as a criminal act. It is our common sense that an assault, a robbery, or a rape is viewed as a violent crime. Why should we look at the crimes differently just because they happen on a college campus or they were committed by college students?
