College is meant to be a formative time in our personal and professional lives. For many of us, it's the first time we live away from home; for a lot of people, it's when we figure out what we want to do for a living. For all the good that can come out of the college experience, though, there are plenty of less-than-ideal things that can happen, too.
One of them is sexual harassment. We might think of people being victimized by requests for sexual favors, lewd language, or other inappropriate behavior as something that is only found in the workplace. However, on many college campuses, this kind of behavior is often the norm. A student at Yale wrote an opinion piece recently in which she urges people to come forward if they have been the victim of this kind of behavior.
