SAN DIEGO — Students at San Diego State University are taking issue with a Business Insider article that ranks SDSU among the top 10 most dangerous campuses in the country.
Many college students consider SDSU paradise, so the ranking came as a big surprise to the Aztecs.
“I don’t think it’s really dangerous. I’ve never had a problem,” freshman Jordan Weeks said.
SDSU is No. 7 on the list. Business insider used FBI crime data during a three-year period to come up with the rankings.
The site looked at schools with more than 10,000 students and then weighed violent and property crime.
SDSU averaged 27 violent incidents a year and 575 reports of property crime.
Those numbers came as a big surprise to freshman Amara Cusella.
“It’s really surprising,” Cusella said. “I see police every night just patrolling. I feel pretty safe when I walk around campus.”
