Students Weigh In On Sexual Assault On Campus

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

The Obama administration is announcing new guidelines today that it hopes will curtail the number of sexual assaults on college campuses.

Some of the guidelines will be: that the colleges conduct anonymous surveys about sexual assault; that colleges train bystanders to intervene; that investigations be confidential.

But how bad a problem is it?

We spoke with several students on the Boston University campus today. Some said they did not know of anyone who had been assaulted, but two students had friends who were.

We hear from Yash Adhikari, a senior, and Emily Pazur, a junior.
