Survivors of sexual assault share experiences, describe aftermath of incident

first_imgAfter Maria, now a junior, was raped in a neighboring male dorm after winter break of her freshman year, simply walking out of her dorm became difficult. “He lived 20 yards away from me. I saw him all the time. All the time,” she said. “It was awful.” The first time she saw her perpetrator after he met her at a party, forced her onto a couch in his dorm room and had sex with her, she threw up “instantly.” After that, she had panic attacks every time she saw him. But for Maria, these physical symptoms would only be the beginning of a long battle with the legal system, the University and herself to regain her sense of justice, faith and self-worth. The Observer changed the names of sources in this article to protect the identity of victims of a crime. Maria reached out for help immediately — telling her friends and the Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP), obtaining a rape kit at the hospital and, ultimately, pressing charges. She took her perpetrator to court in St. Joseph County, but he was not charged. “They didn’t have enough evidence to prosecute him,” Maria said. “Basically, I didn’t have any bruises. I wasn’t beaten or anything like that.” The next step was to take it to the University’s Office of Residence Life and Housing (ORLH), which held a disciplinary hearing — the more formal and serious of meetings — for the male student. But the panel that heard his case did not find the student responsible for sexual misconduct, and he graduated with a degree from Notre Dame later that year, Maria said. Other survivors of sexual assault said they have questioned whether what happened to them can be considered sexual assault. Natalie, a junior, attended a University-sponsored event in South Dining Hall one night during her freshman year and went into the entrance of the dining hall to put her coat and scarf in a cubby. An acquaintance, who had previously asked for her number after class, approached Natalie. She said she did not know him well enough to remember his name at the time. “One second, I think I was just putting my stuff into the cubbies and the next second, he was just grabbing me and trying to fondle me and feel me up,” she said. He wrapped his arms around her, whispered into her ear and attempted to grab her breasts. Natalie tried to get out of the tight hold he had her in, but backed into a wall. Finally, the male student let her go and she immediately left the event. She did not report the incident to the University. “I was just really happy to leave. I didn’t really think what had happened to me was assault,” she said. “Later, I realized it was.” For Kristen, now a senior, the involvement of alcohol made it difficult to know whether she had consented to sex with a male student during her freshman year. She woke up one morning hanging off the side of her bed and had no idea how she had gotten there. When a friend asked her what boy had been in her bed the previous night, Kristen had no idea. She narrowed it down, and one male student admitted to having sex with her. “He then messaged me a couple hours later and said I had better go to Planned Parenthood and get plan B because he hadn’t used a condom,” she said. But it wasn’t until a friend bluntly told her she had been raped that she had the realization that literally stopped her dead in her tracks. “It’s a hard line to draw. What is rape and what is just drunk sex that is consensual?” Kristen said. “Looking back on it now, I realize that I had not [consented].” Kristen got a rape kit at the local hospital and reported it to NDSP. Eventually, though, she stopped the investigation so she could focus on her upcoming finals. She decided not to press charges and opted instead to file a no-contact order, which meant neither party could enter the other’s dorm, and they could not communicate at all. The decision to report the incident, and to what extent to pursue an investigation, was something each survivor battled with in the aftermath of the sexual assault. Maria went into the ORLH hearing knowing she would most likely not be successful, but went through the “long and painful process” because she wanted the administration to have written record of the incident. “I wanted the paperwork to pile up,” she said. “They’re not going to do anything to change if they don’t have the bureaucracy of paperwork piled up on their desks.” Maria said even if a student is not found guilty of sexual misconduct, the University should mandate some sort of counseling. “If you’re trying to protect the students, you have an obligation to protect the victim and the perpetrator,” she said. “It should be just as mandatory as the alcohol classes are for people who get drinking tickets.” Natalie sometimes regrets not reporting the male student who fondled her in the dining hall. Although she said the incident was not “that big of a deal,” she still sees the student in classes and the two share mutual friends. “That’s when I really regret it,” she said. “When I see him talking to one of my really good girl friends and see that he has interest in them.” Having mixed feelings about reporting the incident was only one of the long-term side effects these survivors of sexual assault experienced. After being raped, Maria lost faith — both in God and in the administration. “Having Notre Dame tell me that this didn’t happen was like being raped all over again,” Maria, who had always associated her faith in God with Notre Dame, said. “I couldn’t go to a Mass being said by a Notre Dame priest because I didn’t believe.” But she did find support in her rectress, resident assistant and the University Counseling Center. These aspects of the University have allowed her to maintain her love for Notre Dame. “It was hard for awhile, but I have re-fallen in love with it because it’s more than just the administration,” Maria said. “It’s the family, it’s the friendships, it’s the beauty of the campus.” Kristen said she felt fully supported by faculty and the administration, but often felt the student body chose to ignore that rape occurs at Notre Dame. “There is an apathy among Notre Dame students for this that just shakes me to my core,” she said. The University attempts to raise awareness about sexual assault through programs like “College Has Issues,” a seminar every student is required to attend as a freshman, but Kristen said it is difficult to understand until you have experienced it. “I very vividly remember sitting in ‘College Has Issues’ and making fun of what they said about consent,” she said. “Now I’m realizing how true it was.”last_img read more

Notre Dame physicists research traffic

first_imgNotre Dame researchers, including professor of theoretical physics Zoltán Toroczkai and graduate student Yihui Ren, recently completed a model that will predict traffic patterns based on physics principles and published their work in the journal “Nature Communications.”“The motivation of this work is twofold, intellectual inquisitiveness and practical application,” Ren said. “By observing a complicated system, [physicists] always wonder whether there is a simple fundamental underlying principle driving this system. Human mobility on road networks is such a problem. It is also an old problem.”Ren said the desire to design a model to predict traffic patterns was born out of dissatisfaction with previous models.“We found that most researchers [used] gravity laws to study traffic within urban areas,” he said. “… We found this [to be] unsatisfactory. … An urban area is not a closed system, [and] traffic could come from outside of the city. [Dissatisfaction] is a good thing; it indicates there is room for improvement.”Improvement was made through what Ren described as a long and complicated but ultimately rewarding research period in which he collaborated with and received advice from both Toroczkai and fellow physicist Dr. Maria Ercsey-Ravasz of Babes-Bolyai University in Romania. The result was a model that can predict traffic values on a roadway network based on the network structure and the geographic distribution of the population. The model, Ren said, accomplishes three major milestones.“The first is the first-principles nature of our model, [which] enables its usage on any roadway network without knowing traffic data,” Ren said. “The second accomplishment is high accuracy. By comparing with the empirical data, our model can yield a high linear correlation coefficient around 0.75, which is a validation of the correctness of our model.“The third is high computational efficiency. … It can reduce a 24-hour computation to several hours … but still keep a good result.”The model takes into account the unpredictability of humans as they choose their destinations and the routes to those destinations, according to a press release.The factoring in of one’s choice of destination was based on an earlier traffic prediction model developed by Filippo Simini and Marta González that “takes into account the reasons why people travel, such as commuting to a job. That study is coupled with a model of the cost considerations people use to choose which path to take, such as favoring a quicker interstate route over a shorter but slower road.”Ren said their research is “significantly meaningful in … real world practice” and has a practical application when considering, for example, damage to road networks caused by events such as earthquakes. After such events, populations relocate, and the construction of new roads is necessary to mitigate damage.Predicting traffic patterns more accurately could help “evaluate road construction” before costly plans are drawn up and initiated, Ren said.“Our model is ideal for this purpose,” he said.Tags: Construction, department of physics, Physics, roads, theoretical physics, trafficlast_img read more

Lecture analyzes Celtic Tiger

first_imgSarah L. Townsend, a visiting faculty fellow at the Keough-Naughton Institute, traced in a talk Friday the literary usage of the term “pig” during the Celtic Tiger period in Ireland.Townsend analyzed the Celtic Tiger, a name for the rapid economic growth of the Republic of Ireland in the late 1990s, in the lecture titled “Miracles of Development: From Irish pigs to Celtic Tigers,” which focused particularly on Patrick McCabe’s “The Butcher Boy” and Enda Walsh’s “Disco Pigs.” “The works serve as fascinating barometers of the Celtic Tiger sentiment by capturing the early dizzying promises while simultaneously conveying depression for its excesses, exclusions and violent ends,” she said.These pig-oriented narratives reveal the mental logic of the Celtic Tiger and its aftermath, Townsend said. The Irish works by McCabe and Walsh convey well the transition of Ireland into the Celtic Tiger and the subsequent depression, she said.The authors’ portrayal of characters emphasizes the country’a mentality during the time of transition into the Celtic Tiger economy, Townsend said.“McCabe’s and Walsh’s texts critique the piggish tendencies that development in Ireland caused because of the economic development of the latter 20th century … such as calling out the excesses of Celtic Tiger society,” she said.One example of aligning the transformation of characters to the transformation of the Irish people’s mentality was marking the characters’ development in terms of piggish consumption, Townsend said.“Development of consumer desires [by the characters] mark the emergence of a socialized and mature individual finally able to make and spend like the Celtic Tiger demand,” she said.The characters’ ultimate decline by over-consumption echoes the fate of the Celtic Tiger, which Townsend said transitioned Ireland from the country with the highest standard of living in the world in 2005 to one with a depressed economy by 2010.Tags: Celtic Tiger, Enda Walsh, Ireland, Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies, Patrick MaCabe, Sarah L.

SMC appoints sexual assault task force members

first_imgEric Richelsen | The Observer Last Wednesday, the Saint Mary’s faculty selected members for President Carol Ann Mooney’s task force on sexual assault. Mooney officially announced the creation of the task force over the summer after a screening of the documentary “The Hunting Ground” on April 9 spurred dialogue on the issue of sexual assault on campus.In a letter sent Sept. 8 to Saint Mary’s campus community, Mooney said the task force is comprised of Saint Mary’s students, faculty and staff, and it will announce its recommendations in May. Staff members include counselor Gina Christiana, Vice President for Student Affairs Karen Johnson, Assistant Director of Alumnae Relations Shay Jolly, College counsel Rich Nugent and Director of Campus Ministry Regina Wilson. Students on the task force include sophomore Lydia Lorenc, juniors Caylin McCallick, Kayla Gaughan, Julianne Olivieri and senior Bri O’Brien.Faculty members include Bettina Spencer, associate professor of psychology, librarian Ula Gaha and Jamie Wagman, assistant professor of history and gender and women’s studies.Mooney wrote in the letter,“I am most appreciative of the willingness of so many to participate in this important work and thank them in advance for their service. Minutes of the task force’s meetings will be posted on the college’s portal — [which is] expected to ‘go live’ on October 6.”Mooney, who will serve as chair of the committee, said the task force will address three issues: reducing and eliminating sexual assault and sexual violence against students, improving the College’s procedures for handling claims of sexual assault and sexual violence and providing better support for students who have survived some form of sexual violence.Gaughan said she is honored to be on the task force and hopes her participation will contribute to a reform of the current system.“Being on the task force means I have an opportunity to voice students opinions, concerns and thoughts about sexual assault here at Saint Mary’s,” Gaughan said.“This task force is important to Saint Mary’s because sexual assault is an epidemic on our campus and college campuses around the United States.”The task force is a step in the right direction for the College, Gaughan said.“‘The Hunting Ground’ illustrated how the current system does not serve the student body or survivors. The task force gives us an opportunity make progress in prevention, policy and procedure.” Tags: President Mooney, Presidential Taskforce, saint mary’s, SMClast_img read more

Seniors presented with awards from Division of Student Affairs

first_imgAt the 32nd annual Student Leadership Awards Banquet on April 10, seven graduating seniors were recognized for their contributions to the campus community, a University press release on April 18 said.Flora Tang received the Rev. A. Leonard Collins, C.S.C. Award, which is given to a “senior who has made substantial personal efforts to advance the interests of students at Notre Dame,” the press release said. Tang received the award specifically for her work with Campus Ministry, where she served as a senior intern and co-led the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults program, the process for people looking to become Catholic, and founded a group for Chinese Catholic students on campus her junior year.“For me, what I love about Campus Ministry is more than just my job,” Tang said. “It’s just being with people in a very welcoming space and a very diverse environment and seeing how my own faith and my own diversity could bring hope to people who might not be included on this campus.”Tang said she feels blessed to have received the award.“I was on a school visit when I saw the email,” she said. “I moved a lot growing up, and I never really had a home home, like a place that I can call home even though I have different places I’ve lived at. Notre Dame has been the longest place I’ve ever been at, which is four years, so this place means a lot to me. Getting the award is a really beautiful reminder that this is home for me.”Gregory Jenn was awarded the Rev. Theodore Hesburgh, C.S.C., Award to recognize his efforts toward promoting inclusion on campus, especially for Latino and Latina students and students who are undocumented, the press release said.“I got this overwhelming sense of excitement,” he said of the moment he received the award. “Everything that I did, I did because I wanted to or just because I enjoyed doing [it]. I never expected anything for what I was doing.”Jenn said he was involved with the Latino community on campus since his freshman year in a variety of roles, including being a member of Mariachi ND, the director of the Dia De Los Muertos altar and the president of Latino Student Alliance. He also served as the director for the St. Anthony’s Initiative for the Institute of Latino Studies, which invites high school students from St. Anthony’s to campus and pairs them with Notre Dame students.Majak Anyieth received the John W. Gardner Student Leadership Award, the press release said, which is given for “outstanding community service beyond the University community.”“In his time at Notre Dame, he founded the nonprofit organization Education bridge with the purpose of building schools in [his home country of] South Sudan and educating children in the hopes of becoming leaders and proponents of peace,” the press release said. “Last spring, the organization opened its first school and welcomed more than 200 students.”The Blessed Basil Moreau, C.S.C., Leadership Award was given to Liam Maher for “embodying Blessed Father Moreau’s vision of educating heart and mind,” the press release said.“I was really humbled because I didn’t think anything I had done was necessarily award-worthy or anything,” Maher said. “I was just doing what I always do.”Maher served in a variety of organizations, including the Folk Choir, where he was president, and PrismND where he was the spirituality commissioner.“I got to occupy this really unique intersectional space between really practicing my faith and really being a proponent for creating an inclusive society on campus and helping LGBTQ Catholics reconcile their identity with their faith,” he said. “It was really neat to get to do that work. I got to meet a lot of great people and have a lot of great conversations about it.”Chris Dethlefs, a four-year participant in the men’s boxing club, was recognized with the Ray Siegfried Award for Leadership Excellence, which is awarded to a senior who is devoted to the Catholic faith and athletics. The press release said Dethlefs raised over $17,000 through Bengal Bouts, a boxing tournament that raises money for the Holy Cross missions in Bangladesh.Dethlefs said he participated in an international summer service learning program to Bangladesh after his freshman year and served as a captain of Bengal Bouts for two years.“[Bengal Bouts is] a real brotherhood,” he said. “I met a lot of really amazing guys through it, and it’s an awesome way to learn an amazing sport. [It’s] highly competitive, takes a ton of training and work ethic and really forms you as a person I think, but also having it devoted to a mission that’s other centered is the biggest part of it for me.“Having experienced going to Bangladesh right after my freshman year and kind of getting a better appreciation for what the Bengal Bouts has been able to do over there has really inspired me to give my full heart and effort to the program ever since then.”Maxwell Ujdak received the Mike Russo Spirit Award for his work with the Notre Dame Band. The first student band manager to join the Irish Guard, Ujdak said he didn’t think about the influence he was having while going through his band experience.“Being able to [become a member of the Irish Guard] in the marching band without playing an instrument is pretty phenomenal, and I guess I never gauged the impact of that,” he said. “And then I got that award and it kind of put everything in perspective for me.”Selena Ponio received the Denny Moore Award for Excellence in Journalism for her work with journalism on and off campus, including writing for the The Observer and The South Bend Tribune and interning with CBS’ “60 Minutes.”Editor’s Note: Selena Ponio is former associate news editor for The Observer.Ponio said she felt more excited about the nomination than she did about receiving the award during the awards ceremony.“I was more so moved by the fact that one of my professors that I really looked up to and whose writing I tried to emulate in mine and use his own tips and styles and incorporate them into my writing … thought I was deserving enough to nominate me,” she said.As an intern with The South Bend Tribune the summer after her sophomore year, Ponio said she wrote a front-page column about the shooting in her hometown of Dallas in 2016, when five police officers were killed during a protest march.“I think that was something I wrote for the Tribune that mattered the most to me because it was my hometown,” she said. “ … It was the first time I that I was away from Dallas, so I felt very removed from this very important event that just happened, this tragic event in my hometown. The fact that the Tribune gave me this platform to channel my anger and sadness and being so far away from home during this important time was very rewarding and that they cared that I had something to say about that was kind of surreal.”Tags: division of student affairs, graduating seniors, senior awards, Student leadership awards banquetlast_img read more

Notre Dame Quiz Bowl team advances to Intercollegiate Championship

first_imgShowcasing their knowledge of topics ranging from Greek mythology to Civil War battles, the Notre Dame Quiz Bowl team went undefeated in the National Academic Quiz Tournaments Great Lakes Sectional, securing their spot in the 2019 Intercollegiate Championship. The Division II team competed against 17 other schools and is one of only 28 teams to be invited to the national competition.“We knew we had a good shot at winning but we also knew we wanted to have a good time,” sophomore Ricky Rivera said. “You kind of have to treat it like every other tournament.”Members of the team who qualified for the Intercollegiate Championship include sophomores Rivera, Alex Hymes, Nicholas Mungan and Spencer Brown and freshman Alexander Kuptel. The competition features a variety of different question categories including literature, science, music, geography and sports. Kuptel said he appreciated the diversity of interests among his teammates.“It’s far better to have a team where each player has deep individual knowledge about a specific subject than a team where everyone is a generalist,” Kuptel said.Mungan said the team encourages each other to follow their interests, especially when studying for classes or reading for pleasure.“More serious teams would actually prescribe subjects for people to study but we don’t like to do that,” Mungan said. “Everybody just studies what they want to learn and what they love.”The Quiz Bowl team meets for two hours twice a week to prepare for upcoming tournaments, running through practice questions and competing against each other to sharpen their skills.Many members of the team have been involved in quiz bowl competitions since middle school. Each person has a unique reason for joining the team, including freshman Grace Ma.“One of the main reasons I like Quiz Bowl is because you learn a lot of stuff in class but you don’t always get to apply the stuff you really care about or more obscure pieces of knowledge,” Ma said. “Classes can be pretty general but in Quiz Bowl, if you know detailed information, you get points for that. I really like that.”Freshman Blaise von Ohlen said he admires the competitive aspect of quiz bowl and he enjoys the reward for his hard work and studying.“There’s a really great payoff when you know something obscure and no one else knows it in the room,” von Ohlen said. “It’s a very rewarding feeling.”During study breaks, senior and one of the team’s co-vice president Alaina Anderson said the team possesses natural chemistry and often feels like a family.“We do a lot of bonding outside of practice,” Anderson said. “We go to Legends Trivia Nights and we all hang out afterward. We go out of our way to make it a very welcoming and friendly group.”The team will arrive at the Intercollegiate Championship in Chicago on Saturday, April 6, with hopes of returning home with a victory, Rivera said.“I can say we’re pretty confident,” Rivera said. “We have a mental toughness where we know we can beat anyone on the schedule.”Tags: intercollegiate championship, Notre Dame Quiz Bowl, quiz bowllast_img read more

Suit Claims Jamestown Brewing Company Owes $1,000s In Back Rent, Seeks Eviction

first_imgWNYNewsNow File Image.JAMESTOWN – A lawsuit filed Tuesday seeks to evict the Jamestown Brewing Company from their downtown location after the company allegedly failed to timely pay rent.The suit was filed in Erie County Supreme Court by Buffalo attorney Matthew Miller of Rupp Baase Pfalzgraf Cunningham LLC on behalf of GPatti Enterprises who owns the building the brewers rents at the corner of Third and Washington Streets.GPatti Enterprises says the brewery owes more than $85,000 in base rent.The suit says that the brewers made partial rent payments in November and December. “Despite trying to work with JBC, only a tiny portion of the base rent due has been paid,” the lawsuit states. “By way of context, JBC also has failed to pay any of its other rent obligations required by the lease agreement, including the construction rent, additional rent, percentage rent or TI interest. Similarly, JBC has failed to make any of its contractual utility payments or tax payments.”“Left with no option, GPatti hereby seeks to exercise its right under the lease to, ‘through summary proceedings reenter and take possession of the premises, repossess the same, expel (JBC) and those claiming through or under (JBC), and remove the effects of both or either.”Owners John McClellan I and John McClellan II first entered into a lease agreement in August 2017.The brewers first opened for business in July, but closed briefly after not receiving a liquor license. The license was eventually obtained later in the year.
