RALLY — The organization Students Against Sexist Violence held a rally and march on Penn State’s campus on Oct. 1 to demand the university do more about sexual assaults.

There are times when Penn State sophomore Sonika Kohli gets ready to leave at night when the fear of becoming a sexual assault victim settles into the back of her mind.

She knows the statistics: More than 1 in 4 undergraduate women here have either been victims of sexual assault or attempted sexual assault. She’s listened to stories from friends who have been assaulted, familiarized herself with resources and organized petitions. And, although sexual assault is not something she actively lives in fear of, she — like a growing number of Penn State students — has had enough.
