This paper discusses violence on college campuses in the US, and notes that the mass media tends to sensationalize the most extreme forms of campus violence even though the vast majority of violence on college campuses is not sensational enough to warrant news coverage. The paper then discusses the problem of date rape and sexual assault and relates that, as is the case with rape in general, many occurring on college campuses are never reported. Additionally, the paper discusses the role of alcohol in violence on college campuses and reveals that the one contributing element shared most commonly by all forms other than premeditated attacks on random individuals is alcohol consumption.
