From http://findarticles.com/p/articles/m...8/ai_n10028294, the national rape rate is 64.8 per 100,000 people.

Alabama has 25,580 students for a rate of 11.7 per 100,000 people
Auburn has 24,137 students for a rate of 4.1 per 100,000 people
UGA has 33,831 students for a rate of 5.9 per 100,000 people.
Texas has 36,878 undergrad students for a rate of 2.7 per 100,000 people.
UF has 34,612 undergrad students for a rate of 11.6 per 100,000 people.
LSU has 33,587 students for a rate of 3.0 per 100,000 people.

There you go.

ETA: And most of these schools are lumping rape and forcible sexual assault (which is any sexual assault other than incest or statutory rape together), so it's possible I'm actually overestimating the rape rates.
Thanks for backing up your claim. But again, like several others have stated, these represent reported crimes. I'm sure if other incidents were factored in, they would be close to (or on par) with the national average.
