Rape Is Not an 'Off-The-Field Distraction'

Ali Safran | May 4, 2015 | College

Justin Maffett | May 4, 2015 | College
Discussions of sexual assault at Dartmouth's students are geared towards the heteronormative sexual and social relationships that emerge primarily in fraternity basements. Dartmouth cannot afford to fail these students by neglecting to prepare them for the spectrum of situations they may encounter.
