UltraViolet Story Goes National

Last Saturday, we reported on UltraViolet’s campaign against what it called the College’s “rape culture.” The story has now made the national media. Here is Bloomberg’s story:

Read the full story here. The College’s social media ads direct the viewer to this College webpage.

Meanwhile, the New York Times has noted the disparate evolution in the number of applications at the different Ivies:

In the piece, Dean Laskaris trots out the tired old explanations to deflect attention away from the significant drop, but the Times is not fooled:

“We are doing some work to understand why,” says Maria Laskaris, Dartmouth dean of admissions and financial aid. For one, there are fewer applicants from the Northeast and Midwest, mirroring declining pools of high school students in the regions. And with most attending college within 200 miles of home, she says, “there are fewer students in our own backyard.” Dartmouth’s reputation has also taken a hit over charges that it has failed to combat sexual violence on campus, spurring the president last month to propose a new sexual assault disciplinary policy.

Is anyone fooled?

Addendum: Numerous papers, including the Valley News, have picked up the Bloomberg report.
