(WTKR-TV) In four of the five past years, Virginia Wesleyan College has recorded the highest rates of on-campus liquor violations in the state, according to a NewsChannel 3 analysis of campus-safety records. In the other year, it was second.
At the core of a lawsuit filed Friday in Norfolk is that the college founded on Christian principles has an undercurrent of underage drinking and sexual assault. In 2012 a freshman attending an orientation party says she was given alcohol spiked with a drug. She says a lacrosse player followed her to her dorm, but then pulled her into his room and raped her. She says the five-hour attack left her bloody and bruised, and traumatized.
