Only 7 Students Reported Sexual Assault At This College. That's Shocking — And Not In A Good Way.

Hopefully we can take a look at these numbers and agree on one thing: Students who are sexually assaulted should feel that their school has their best interests at heart.

Only 7 Students Reported Sexual Assault At This College. That's Shocking — And Not In A Good Way.

The takeaway:

The number of people reporting sexual assault is way lower than expected. The problem? Students are too scared to report to the school for many reasons. These problems at Columbia have been at the center of media coverage on campus sexual assault since early 2014. The student activism surrounding the issue has been covered by The New York Times and CNN, just to name two.


But Columbia's not the only college with this problem. You can check out data visuals from HEARR on other colleges by searching for them in the interactive above.

Note! I know this data focuses on women as victims reporting assault. While it's common for rape victims to be female, it's important to note that anyone of any gender can be a victim *or* a rapist. While this content isn't gender-neutral, it's still important despite this oversight. OK. Carry on!

When the COVID-19 pandemic socially distanced the world and pushed off the 2020 Olympics, we knew the games weren't going to be the same. The fact that they're even happening this year is a miracle, but without spectators and the usual hustle and bustle surrounding the events, it definitely feels different.

But it's not just the games themselves that have changed. The coverage of the Olympics has changed as well, including the unexpected addition of un-expert, uncensored commentary from comedian Kevin Hart and rapper Snoop Dogg on NBC's Peacock.

In the topsy-turvy world we're currently living in, it's both a refreshing and hilarious addition to the Olympic lineup.

Just watch this clip of them narrating an equestrian event. (Language warning if you've got kiddos nearby. The first video is bleeped, but the others aren't.)
