I'm looking for an apartment in Nashville, and need help figuring out which areas are safe.

I will be attending Vanderbilt as a grad student, and am having some trouble figuring out what areas are safe and which aren't. I want to be close to campus, preferably on the east side (that's where my classes will be). I'm looking at a place near 16th and Wedgewood, but it seems like Edgehill might be a less safe area (I think this place is right on the border of Edgehill). Other apartments I'm interested are in the West End. I would prefer Hillsboro Village, but it doesn't seem like there are a ton of apartments there.
Just a little background about me to explain my comfort level with city living...I am fairly paranoid about personal safety. I live in DC now, but I have mostly lived in extremely safe neighborhoods. The one time I didn't, I felt pretty uncomfortable a lot of the time, to the point where I had trouble sleeping. I like to run outside alone and will be keeping odd hours.
Is the place on the edge of Edgehill an ok location, or should I really be focusing my search on one of the other sides of campus? Are there other areas close to campus that I might be neglecting?
