UWA Named Safest College Campus in State

The University of West Alabama has another achievement to celebrate this month, as UWA was recently named the safest college campus in the state of Alabama by ADT Security.

The triumph was highlighted earlier this month on ADT’s blog on yourlocalsecurity.com. According to the site, to determine the safest school in each state, ADT tallied crimes reported by universities and then divided them into the following three categories: violent crime, property crime and violence against women. The rankings were then determined by weighing the crimes by severity and dividing the school’s crime score by enrollment to calculate total per-capita crime.

The report noted that UWA sees low instances of violent crime, property crime and violence against women. The report also cited the campus police department’s strict visitor policy, which requires infrequent visitors to visit the campus police station for a card permit. The policy requires frequent visitors to apply for a hang tag that indicates their reason for visiting campus and that lists their vehicle’s make and model and proof of liability insurance.

All schools included in the report are private or non-profit four-year colleges with enrollments higher than 1,000. The University of Alabama, which enrolls around 5,000 students per semester, earned the safest college campus in Alabama ranking to runners up Faulkner University in Montgomery and Samford University in Birmingham.

If campus safety is one of your priorities for the school you or your family member chooses, consider the safest private college campus in the state at the University of West Alabama in Livingston!
