College students are among many people who are targets for criminals. I don't agree that males are necessarily better equipped to defend themselves - there are some very hard-core athletic girls and some very non-athletic males out there. Also, as women are more likely to be raped, they tend to be prepared against attacks when a man may not be expecting anything. Colleges should report crimes and punish students who offend, so campuses are safer in general. Students should be smart, travel in groups and room together for safety. More at risk than college students are the elderly who live alone.
I don’t think it is only college students that are easy targets for criminals. Women and children are also easy targets for criminals. People say that women and children are weak and it makes them vulnerable to crimes. On the other hand, college students, especially male students are most likely to be able to defend themselves when there is a crime.
If they live alone they should install a camera that records everything on the the cloud and if somebody steals from them maybe the criminals will be arrested. They know when they go to school and when they are going to get back.
