Waxahachie, Texas – Thursday, June 23, 2016 – Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) has been named one of the safest colleges in Texas by Background .

SAGU Dean of Students Lance Meche said, “SAGU can attribute it’s high level of safety to many factors, one of the most important is the well-trained Safety and Security Department led by Director Ron Crane.”

Along with 24-hour patrolling security, SAGU’s campus curfew allows security to know who is and is not authorized to be on-campus during late night hours. SAGU has a wide array of security cameras that covers the entire campus as well as electronic access points in the dorms and buildings that require an ID card for entry.

SAGU’s campus has well-lit parking lots and walking areas, a neighborhood that provides an environment that is welcoming and safe, and a student body who is friendly and courteous, yet watchful for anything out of the ordinary.

To compile the report, Background combined data from recent Department of Education Reports, natural language analysis, social media sentiment analysis and their own research to create a ranking of the 50 Safest Colleges in Texas .

“It’s a true testament to a great administration, strong leadership, student and community involvement,” said Jessica Pierce, a Background public safety analyst. “In a world full of bad news, it’s great to have something positive for residents, and it’s something to be proud of.”
