The research issue I will be addressing is the high amounts of rape on college campuses. The reason being that most sexual assaults are due to intoxication on alcohol or drugs, commonly found at college sites with social gatherings and parties. Often time’s victims are taken advantage of when incoherent. Most cases of rape also go unreported due to the victim feeling responsible or embarrassed by the situation, and fear of being blamed. The effects that take place for the victim is physiological damage, and emotional stress. Victims who do not learn to cope with their situation and seek the proper amount of help often end up self-harming or committing suicide. The effects of these outcomes then take a toll on loved ones of the victim.
