Highland Heights Named 7th Safest College Town in America

Highland Heights was named the seventh-safest college town in America by Safewise.

The company analyzed recent FBI crime stats and campus safety initiatives to see which towns and cities are the safest for students, faculty, and staff.

Safewise said of Highland Heights:

Tucked away in the hills of northern Kentucky, Highland Heights is a suburb across the river from Cincinnati that has maintained its small-town charm and low crime rate despite the rapid growth of Northern Kentucky University. As one of the state’s fastest-growing colleges, NKU has managed the influx of higher student populations while keeping crime rates low. The university’s most recent campus crime report revealed zero incidents of robbery, aggravated assault, murder, fondling, and arson in the 2015 academic year. Security is just one part of what students love about NKU—student reviews on Unigo indicate the campus is diverse, inclusive, safe, and welcoming.

Safewise provides reviews on safety issues in a variety of subject areas.
