The fact now remains that bullying is not strictly happening in elementary schools, middle school and high schools; it is also now a fixture of everyday college life. NoBullying releases Today The Ultimate Guide to Bullying in College.
When it comes to Bullying in College, according to a Health Day News study in 2012, 15 percent of college students studied reported being bullied and nearly 22 percent reported being part of cases of cyber bullying in college. The study found that when it comes to bullying in college is that 38 percent of students knew someone who was facing cyber bullying in college and about 9 percent said they had done some form of cyber bullying in college on someone else.
Of those who said they’d been cyberbullied, 25 percent said it was through a social networking site, 21 percent through texting, 16 percent through email and 13 percent through instant messages.
Finally, in the same bullying in college study, 42 percent of students said they had seen someone being bullied by another student, 8 percent reported bullying another student, and nearly 15 percent had seen a professor bully a student and 4 percent said they had been bullied by a professor.
The guide also covers several aspects of why bullying in college happens in the first place such as acquiring new targets, the population of a particular high school may go their separate ways after graduation, requiring those with bullying tendencies to either move on with their lives or find others. Another reason is more pressure than bullying in school, academic pressure is higher, plus peer pressure. Too many drinks at a dorm or fraternity party can cause people to focus more of their attention on a ‘weird’ kid.
