“We will not tolerate sexual misconduct in any form”
Male students were allegedly competing with each other over who could have more sexual encounters with female students. I have a feeling this is more common than people think.
The Star Tribune reports:
Alleged sex competition by St. John’s University students sparks investigation, protest
An alleged sex competition started by male students at St. John’s University in the central Minnesota town of Collegeville is being investigated by administrators and condemned by female students from the private institution’s sister school, the College of St. Benedict.
The Record, which serves as the student newspaper for the two Roman Catholic partner colleges, first reported the allegations that students living in a dorm at St. John’s, which is an all-male university, competed to see who could have the most sexual encounters with women attending St. Benedict.
According to the campus newspaper, the St. John’s students made a list with the names of certain St. Benedict students and assigned point values for different actions. Details of the list are unclear.
Katie Alvino, a spokeswoman for the colleges, said administrators learned of the allegations in late September and have been “actively investigating” ever since.
“We will not tolerate sexual misconduct in any form,” Alvino said in a statement Thursday. “We are utilizing trained, impartial, third-party investigators to determine the responsible parties. We are committed to creating and maintaining an environment in which all members of the community respect the rights and human dignity of all.”
