A study in the journal Violence Against Women has proven that 54% of male college athletes admit to the history of “sexually coercive” behavior like sexual assault or rape. That means every other college athlete you’ve met as sexually assaulted someone. One in five women are sexually assaulted while in college and over 90% of sexual assault victims attending college do not report the assault. That means you’ve probably talked to a woman in your class who was raped but never told anyone about it.

Isn’t college fun? Well, it wasn’t for these women, and it might not be for college athletes after the scandals blew up. If you’re thinking about going to college or have a child who is on their way to college, you may not want to think about going to the ones on this list.
