Howard and Connie Clery were delighted when their only daughter, Jeanne, told them of her decision to enroll at Lehigh, a small private co-educational university in Bethlehem, Pa., little more than an hour from home. Had she chosen to follow in the footsteps of her two brothers, Jeanne might have gone off to New Orleans, to Tulane, which was so far away. Yes, the Clerys agreed, Lehigh was perfect. "The minute she saw Lehigh she fell in love with it," Connie Clery remembers.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Penn State isn't the only university that's had a problem reporting sex crimes. Here in Ann Arbor, in December, federal prosecutors charged Stephen Jenson, a resident physician at the University of Michigan hospital studying pediatrics, with possession of child pornography. Yet a co-worker had reported seeing the child porn six months earlier. The co-worker briefly caught a glimpse of what she thought was child pornography on a computer Jenson had been using in a medical residents' lounge.

As most students at Eastern Michigan University were heading home for the holidays in December, the school put out a news release announcing that student Laura Dickinson had unexpectedly passed away in her dorm room. There was no foul play, the school said. Staff members assured worried students they were safe. The campus fell into mourning, with candlelight vigils for the lanky 22-year-old member of the crew team.

I read "Campus Crime Crusade" (by Beverly Beyette, Aug. 10) with mixed feelings. I am grateful for the article but wish it had gone one step further. In a month we are sending our youngest child and only daughter to a UC campus so we need to know the extent of violent crimes on the campuses. During a two-day orientation for parents and students in June, school officials avoided the issue of campus violence and focused instead on academic challenges, extracurricular activities and homesickness.

Academics, cost, lifestyle. And this spring, as parents and high school seniors consider which college to choose, another factor is gaining more attention -- crime on campus. "We certainly feel morally responsible when we advise students to point out that safety is part of the picture, just as much as finding a curriculum that's good for you and an ambience that suits you," Connecticut education consultant Marcia Rubinstien said.

UCLA reported eight sexual assaults on campus last year; USC had seven. Thirty-eight cars were stolen from Cal State Northridge parking lots last year. UC Irvine had 25 aggravated assaults and 215 burglaries. Whether those are numbers to worry about is open to debate. But for the first time, the public has easy access to crime statistics from these colleges and 4,200 others. The data can be found on a Web site provided by the U.S. Department of Education, ope.ed.gov/security.
