Le Moyne says "No More" to sexual assault

"No More": – a message Le Moyne College plans on sending to new students with a video.
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - "No More" – a message Le Moyne College plans on sending to freshman with a new video created by some of their students.

It'll be shown during the college's Relationships 101 program at freshman orientation to raise awareness about sexual assault.

“We're doing a service by helping 600 incoming freshman by saying ‘hey this is what's going on and you gotta be made aware of it,’” said Vincent Randazzo, a senior at the college who helped create the video. “You ask anyone on a college campus they will say in some way, indirectly or not, they know, or have heard of some who dealt with some sort of sexual assault.”

The U.S. Department of Justice Estimates a college with 10,000 students could experience as many as 350 rapes per year and many just go unreported.

“We are very concerned about it and we are doing everything we can to help reduce this and prevent it,” said Anne Kearney, Director of Health and Wellness at Le Moyne. “It's a real issue.”
