Huntington University is ranked by Niche.com as the sixth-safest college campus in the country. The rankings were determined by student reviews and statistics from the U.S. Department of Education.
The factors used to determine the rankings include student surveys on safety, campus crime rate, freshman retention rate, graduation rate, local crime grade and alcohol- and drug-related arrests. Over 1,700 colleges and universities were assessed for the rankings.
"We are thankful to be recognized as a safe campus," said Dr. Ron Coffey, vice president for student life at Huntington.

Huntington University continues to be a place where students can receive a high-quality, Christ-centered education within the context of a safe learning environment."
