The University of South Carolina (USC) Columbia campus was recently named the sixth safest campus in the U.S. and the top safest campus in South Carolina, according to a recent study by an affiliate of ADT security company.

USC’s ranking was bolstered by its use of Rave Guardian app, a student safety app, and its safety web page , which lists a daily crime log, crime bulletins, crime mapping and victim resources to help students, faculty and staff stay informed. Both of these resources help students take their safety into their own hands.
