Nearly One in Five Female College Freshmen Sexually Assaulted: Study
Scott Schneider was quoted on the Doctors Lounge on May 20, 2015. The article “Nearly One in Five Female College Freshmen Sexually Assaulted: Study” examined a new study that found almost one out of every five young women was raped or experienced attempted rape during her freshman year at a large private university in upstate New York.
The problem is not confined to the campus, said Scott.
The sexual assault rate for all women aged 17 to 23 is high, regardless of whether they are attending college, Scott noted.
Scott stated that he plans to advise his 15-year-old daughter to avoid extreme alcohol consumption, and to choose friends who will look out for her if she becomes impaired.
