Crenshaw high? Or UC Davis?

U.C. Davis is topping a national list of colleges, but for all the wrong reasons. According to a new survey done by Reader's Digest, U.C. Davis is among the most dangerous college campuses in the country. The top five campuses with high crime rates are: University of Colorado, U.C. Davis, University of Florida, University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and Duke University. The safest campuses are New York University, Johns Hopkins University, Boston University, University of Chicago and University of Nevada at Las Vegas. U.C. Davis has not commented on this survey. In the past University officials have said that their bad ranking may not be an indication of an actual increase in crime but instead an increase in the number of crimes reported because of new procedures put in place to make it easer to report crimes.

I can vouch. After our great bong was stolen, I never looked at Davis in the same light.
