Student Safety Comes First!
Media sources often portray the United States of America as a place where there is a lot of crime.. While there are certain tiny sections of the country that are prone to high crime and violence rates, most of the United States is extremely peaceful and law-abiding. The stories of a “Wild West” mindset throughout America are just fairy tales and malicious gossip.
Especially peaceful and safe is the small city of Provo, Utah. Nomen Global Language Centers chose to locate its headquarters and school in Provo precisely because it is such a stable and quiet area of the country. According to the website Neighborhood Scout the chances of becoming a victim of a crime in Provo are 1 in 769, while the chances of becoming a crime victim in the state of Utah are 1 in 486. Nationally, the average is 1 in 239.

The traffic flow is stable, and road rage incidents are few and far between. Public transportation is very convenient, and there is virtually no crime reported on buses or trains in the entire Utah Valley. Compare that with New York City, where a crime is committed on the subway every 89 minutes!
