University of Chicago issues warning about students being drugged at parties  - CBS Chicago

An undergraduate student at UChicago reported on Tuesday to campus security that they were sexually assaulted in a dorm room on Friday, October 28. According to the notice, the student believed that their drink had been spiked as well.

“Really, that’s taking it way too far for my taste. It seems like a very severe matter. Please don’t just dismiss it as a precautionary warning “Jess Xiong, a sophomore at the University of Chicago’s College, put it this way. “My impression is that the problem with these campus safety alerts is that they essentially amount to a statement of indifference. To put it simply, you all need to be aware of the situation.”

The University of Chicago Police have confirmed that they are investigating the allegations, but they have told CBS 2 that no victims have yet come forward to file reports. Nonetheless, the administration considered it necessary to issue a warning to the Hyde Park campus.

“In my opinion, it is quite helpful that the institution keeps us informed about events like these. Second-year College student Joshua Pixley stated, “I think that many institutions would be tempted to kind of sweep things under the rug,” which raises the question of what else we need to know to prevent such incidents.”
