Almost half of undergraduates say they have experienced emotional, physical or sexual violence stemming from personal relationships before or during college, according to a new study. Although students said most incidents of emotional and physical abuse were committed by partners, some acts of sexual violence involved friends, acquaintances and strangers.
The study did not look at violence by family members. Most relationship violence occurs before students step on campus, the study found. The research, published in the July issue of the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, was based on a survey of 910 students (390 male, 520 female) ages 17 to 22 from three campuses: a nonresidential community college, a mid-size Catholic university and a large Ivy League university.
