TFC Named Safest College In Georgia

Toccoa Falls College is extremely proud to be named as one of the five safest colleges in America as chosen by the website WalletHub in its recently released 2020 College and University Ranking. TFC was the only college selected in the state of Georgia. These top-ranked colleges offer a safe and healthy environment with little or no campus crime, drugs, or alcohol usage.

Each year the website WalletHub compares more than 1,000 higher-education institutions in the U.S. across 33 key measures.  The data set is grouped into seven catagories including, Student Selectivity, Cost and Financing, Faculty Resouces, Campus Safety, Campus Experience, Educational Outcomes and Career Outcomes. The campus safety metrics are calculated using on-campus arrests and on-campus crime formulas.

Data used to create the 2020 College and University ranking were collected from the National Center for Education Statistics, the Council for Community and Economic Research, U.S. Department of Education, COLLEGEdata and PayScale. Its full methodology can be found on the web page with the full national rankings.

Earlier this year, Toccoa Falls College was ranked as the #4 Safest College Campus in Georgia by the website Niche in their 2020 Safest College Campuses in Georgia list. The 2020 Safest College Campuses ranking was based on key statistics and student reviews using data from the U.S. Department of Education. Toccoa Falls College takes great pride in providing students a safe learning environment where students feel at home and can be empowered to achieve their highest potential.
