And here is another (shorter) story I wrote for our November issue

Just realized I forgot to share my latest stories on Google+. Here is my first feature for Marie Claire about rape on college campuses. Here's one quote from the story that I find particularly haunting: "I don't particularly like phrasing it this way, but in a purely statistical sense, a college campus is a pretty safe place to commit a sexual assault from the perspective of a rapist. Your odds of having anything serious happen to you are really, really small," said one expert.

TIME is enrolling in several of these classes to see what all the fuss is about."

My latest on the continuing drama at UVA:

"Trustees at the University of Virginia voted unanimously on Tuesday to reinstate the president they ousted just two weeks ago. But while the decision to restore Teresa Sullivan to the position she had held since August 2010 brings to an end days of swirling uncertainty, speculation and campus protests, the issues the drama brought to the forefront are likely to echo across college campuses nationwide for months to come."
