Louisiana State University Eunice was ranked second in the nation for campus safety in a recent report by an online college data site.

StateUniversity.com, a web site that compiles information about institutions of higher learning, ranked LSU Eunice number two, giving it a 99.93 percent safety rating.

According to the web site, the ratings are calculated based on crime reports submitted by college and university law enforcement between January 1 and December 31.

Crime data for 450 campuses was evaluated and ranked based on the severity of the crime, for instance, violent crime such as murder, rape, and battery were given a higher ranking than nonviolent crime such as theft.
