Sexual assaults more likely among college students

Posted:
ALBANY, N.Y. -  According to researchers, women who go to college are at a greater risk of being victim to assault compared to the ones who don't attend.

United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand released a letter Monday to protect students from sexual assault.

She is asking the White House to direct the Department of Education to focus on sexual assault complaints and to require all colleges to conduct standardized, anonymous surveys on campus assaults.  

Gillibrand said it is simply unacceptable that going to college should increase a female's chance of being sexually assaulted.
