LAURINBURG — On the campus of St. Andrews University on Tuesday, some 20 students and faculty members joined with the staff of the county’s Domestic Violence and Rape Crisis Center for a grim education — on the pervasiveness of sexual assault on college campuses and elsewhere, and the effects it has on the people behind the numbers.“Sex assault is something people do not like to talk about,” said Beth Taylor, executive director of the center. “Sadly, the statistics are currently that one in six women have experienced, at some point in their life, sexual assault of some kind and one in 33 men.“I don’t think the male statistic is quite correct, I just think men don’t report as women do.”
