LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- It's a high ranking an Indiana college isn't proud of -- the number of hate crimes.  Purdue University has the second-most reports of such crimes among colleges across the country.

Seven alleged hate crimes were reported on the West Lafayette campus last year.  The FBI says five of those incidents reflected racial bias and two were related to religion.

Besides Purdue, hate crimes were reported at Indiana State, Indiana University Southeast, and IUPUI.
