LOS ANGELES, Nov. 24 (Xinhua) -- Based on Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) data, Business Insider listed in its latest edition 25 "most dangerous" colleges in the United States, five of which are in California.

University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA) is listed as the most dangerous college in America. The university, with a student population of 38,157, has 49 violent crimes per year, and with 921 property crimes per year. UCLA claimed that the magazine crunched the data.

While crime declined in 2011, things are still terrible: There were 12 forcible rapes; 11 robberies; 17 aggravated assaults; 195 burglaries; 625 larcenies; 18 motor vehicle thefts; and three incidents of arson.

Business Insider said it averaged FBI crime data per capita from 2008 to 2011 for schools with enrollment over 10,000. Schools were ranked based on a combination of the violent crime rank and property crime rank (weighted 4:1). Violent crimes include murder/non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. Property crimes include burglary, larceny, motor vehicle theft, and arson.

The other four "most dangerous" colleges in California are University of California-Berkeley, No. 3 on the list; San Diego State University, No. 7 on the list; California State University-Fresno, No. 19 on the list and University of California-Riverside, No. 24.

University of California-Berkeley, with a student population of 35,833, has 38 violent crimes and 915 property crimes per year. Violent crime dropped to 32 incidents in 2011, while property crime spiked to 1,011.

San Diego State University, with a student population of 29,187, has 27 violent crimes and 575 property crimes per year. Violent crimes were relatively low in 2011, with only five forcible rapes, three robberies, and five aggravated assaults.
