Yep I can't think of a safer school (in the US or UK, no direct exp in AU). Anywhere in the world there's always some risk, its a fact of life, but the risk is really minimal. Think about how many hundreds of thousands of students there are in many thousands of universities across the US, as sad as it is with that many sooner or later something bad is going to happen, but your probably more likely to die by slipping in a bathtub. Heck, UMD has more students than Oxford, Cambridge and LSE combined (I think)!
