It may sound silly but Google Street Map is actually quite helpful in situations like this. You can see the area 'around' the school and judge from the housing quality, retail options, etc near the campus. Just about every street in most cities in the US are available and even some campus (filmed from a camera bicycle) are online.

For example, Richmond's campus is very urban in the heart of the city, whereas McNeese State is a bit rural looking. Get a bit of a rundown just by 'virtually' touring the areas. Might help.

Also all US universities have to report their crime data annually to the government. You can search for this crime data to get an idea of the safety on each campus:

But that data can be a bit miss leading because it's got to include x miles around and if you looked at that alone, you'd be horrified by the crime rate for Boston College because it's right over the common where you get loads of people done for drunk offences and the like, but very little actually involving the college or grounds.
