Not Exactly Surprising

10 per­cent of women raped, or near­ly raped in first year of college
When par­ents send their daugh­ters off to col­lege, few think they may return home as vic­tims. Yet rough­ly 10 per­cent of women have expe­ri­enced an attempt­ed or com­plet­ed rape dur­ing their first year at an Amer­i­can col­lege and, often, alco­hol is involved. This asso­ci­a­tion is rein­forced by find­ings pub­lished in the April issue of Alco­holism: Clin­i­cal & Exper­i­men­tal Research, name­ly, that col­lege women have a much greater chance of expe­ri­enc­ing victimization—both sex­u­al and nonsexual—on the days they drink.
