Sexual assault reported on campus

first_imgNotre Dame Security Police (NDSP) emailed students Friday evening alerting them to a report of sexual assault that occurred early in the morning of Sept. 13.The reported assault took place in a women’s residence hall in the northeast area of campus, and the report was made to a University administrator, the email stated.The email quoted “du Lac: A Guide to Student Life,” Notre Dame’s official policy book, and warned students of the risks of sexual assault as well as the standards of consent.“Sexual assault can happen to anyone,” the email stated. “Anyone initiating any kind of sexual contact with another person must seek consent and not engage in sexual contact unless consent is given.Students should maintain caution and awareness of their surroundings to avoid risks, the email stated.“On college campuses, perpetrators are more likely to assault an acquaintance than a stranger. Being aware of your own safety and watching out for your friends are important steps you can take to reduce the risk of sexual assault.“The perpetrator, not the survivor, is responsible for any instance of sexual assault. Nothing a survivor does or does not do is an excuse for sexual assault.”Student Government will hold a prayer service Monday at the Grotto at 5:15 p.m. in response to the crime alert, student body vice president Matthew Devine said.Tags: crime alert, NDSP, sexual assault, Student governmentlast_img read more

5 important players to watch at Syracuse’s Spring Game

first_img Published on April 17, 2014 at 1:22 am Contact Stephen: | @Stephen_Bailey1 Facebook Twitter Google+ John Miller (center)Miller began taking first-team snaps on April 6 and has since impressed his teammates and coaches.His move allows Rob Trudo, who had been transitioning to the center position, to return to left guard, where he started all of last season.Miller’s strength is his snapping ability. While Trudo struggled to consistently place shotgun snaps — occasionally hitting a running back in the chest rather than the quarterback’s hands — Miller is accurate and consistent with his timing.A strong performance in the Spring Game could help the front-runner lock up the starting job.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Some people are natural at it, and Miller is,” Syracuse quarterbacks coach Tim Lester said. “Our guys love it when he’s in there just because they know where it’s going to be and when it’s going to get there.”Adonis Ameen-Moore (running back)Ameen-Moore is primed for a return to the rotation after receiving only five carries last season.Once a Tank package specialist, the rising senior is working to slim down and become more of the downhill, power-type back that SU lost in Jerome Smith. He displayed that ability with a couple mean stiff arms in the team’s open practice on April 8.SU running backs coach DeAndre Smith called Ameen-Moore’s improvement the biggest surprise of the group this spring, and said he expects him to get more carries in the fall.“Absolutely he’ll see some snaps,” Smith said. “If he progresses like he should and he drops the weight that we’re going to target for him, he’ll play. Absolutely.”Austin Wilson (quarterback)The rising sophomore has taken the majority of second-team snaps this spring and boasts the strongest arm of the quarterbacks.“He has a cannon,” rising junior quarterback Terrel Hunt said. “That’s the first thing. He can throw. Sometimes I’m like, ‘I’ve got to step my game up.’”Make no mistake, Hunt’s job is secure. But Wilson can strengthen his hold on the backup job with a strong Spring Game performance.He’s been competing with freshman A.J. Long and fellow rising sophomore Mitch Kimble, who missed time earlier in the spring with a lower-back injury.Marqez Hodge (linebacker)Flanked by rising seniors Dyshawn Davis and Cam Lynch, Hodge is preparing to take on the role of starting middle linebacker as a rising sophomore.He broke out with a career-high 12 tackles in the Orange’s 56-0 loss to Georgia Tech last season, played sparingly down the stretch and looked comfortable making calls at the line on April 8.“I like this Hodge kid,” SU head coach Scott Shafer said. “He’s really putting some good plays on tape. I’m feeling real comfortable with him in the middle now.”Wayne Williams (defensive tackle)The junior college journey is over for Williams, but the path to playing time is still long from over for the 6-foot-4, 330-pound space-eater.He’s spending the majority of his practice time getting in shape, and defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough said Williams can only play 5–10 plays full speed.“He’s got to get in shape,” SU defensive line coach Tim Daoust said. “Thank the Lord he’s here now and not in August.”Williams said he expects to contribute in the fall, and teammates agree he has the talent and strength to do so.We’ll get a live look at his motor for the first time Saturday.
