After a Rape Story, a Murder, and Lawsuits: What’s Next for the University of Virginia?

The outer perfection of Mr. Jefferson’s university conceals deeper tensions—between black and white, men and women, aristocracy and democracy.

I. THE FIRST LAYER
Any story about the University of Virginia must begin with its founder, Thomas Jefferson, who is often referred to locally as “Mr. Jefferson”; with an invocation of the Rotunda and the surrounding “academical village”; and with a discussion of the venerable Honor Code and the exclusive secret societies. There must be a reference to the university as a “Public Ivy” or perhaps a “Southern Ivy,” and to the act of being physically on campus as being “on grounds.” There must be a nod to “girls in pearls and guys in ties” attending football games and horse races but paying attention to neither.

I like the dreams of the future
better than the history of the past.

More recently, there’s another thing that any story about the University of Virginia must mention: the horrific period the institution has just come through. The school year started in September 2014 with the disappearance and murder of Hannah Graham, an undergraduate in her second year. Then came the publication, in November 2014, of an explosive Rolling Stone story about the alleged gang rape of a young woman named Jackie at a U.Va. fraternity—an investigative report that was quickly discredited and has now been retracted but that has left lasting divisions. In late November, a second-year U.Va. student and heir to the D’Agostino supermarket chain committed suicide, one of three students to do so last fall. The following March there occurred an incident involving a 20-year-old African-American honor student, Martese Johnson, who presented his driver’s license at a bar near the school and was turned away. Shortly afterward, after questioning the validity of his ID, two white state Alcoholic Beverage Control (A.B.C.) agents had him pinned to the ground. With rivulets of blood lining his face, he was heard to scream, “I go to U.Va.! I go to U.Va., you fucking racists!” Any one of these events would have been enough to puncture the idyllic façade of Mr. Jefferson’s university. Taken together, the impact has been profound. The entire school seems to be suffering an institutional form of PTSD.

I recently returned to my alma mater on a glorious day in May. Final exams were under way, amid radiant bursts of azaleas, tulips, and dogwoods. I walked the serpentine gardens that surround the Lawn with an old friend who has settled in Charlottesville, and we talked about how hard and strange the year had been. I felt the familiar pull of the loveliness of the place—eliciting a desire, built into the mortar of the undulating brick walls, not to dwell too much on the negative.

When I arrived at U.Va., in 1992, Bill Clinton was on the presidential campaign trail for the first time. We were already hearing stories about his alleged longtime mistress, Gennifer Flowers. We took it for granted that Clinton was the Horndog President. He was a recognizable archetype—the roguish, charming, bad-boy southerner, though far too plebeian for the University of Virginia’s tastes, which run to a Regency-rake version of the same basic character. But Clinton’s election spurred a revived discussion of a New South, one that was modern and attractive to the rest of the country. It was this part of Clinton that appealed to students at U.Va., who are always engaged in an exercise of trying on the variety of southern raiment that the university has to offer.

Many people love their alma mater, but the University of Virginia invites a special loyalty. Part of this, I think, has to do with the care Jefferson took when he conceived the place. He designed the campus personally and regarded the creation of the university as more significant than his presidency. U.Va. has been at the forefront of defining what an American university should be ever since its founding, in 1819. The ranks of its alumni range from Edgar Allan Poe and Woodrow Wilson to Tina Fey and Katie Couric to Tiki Barber and Ralph Sampson. This year, U.S. News & World Report ranked it as the second-best public university in the country (behind Berkeley and tied with U.C.L.A.). About 70 percent of the school’s 16,000 undergraduates come from Virginia and pay $13,000 a year to attend, one of the great bargains in higher education; the 30 percent from out of state pay $42,000, still a relative bargain. Poet laureate Rita Dove, civil-rights leader Julian Bond, and philosopher Richard Rorty have all taught at U.Va. William Faulkner was a writer-in-residence. Graduates of U.Va. see the place as particularly distinctive. Whenever my husband wants to get a rise out of me, he tells me that U.Va. is a great school, just like Michigan or Wisconsin. And like any place that is particularly distinctive, the flaws are distinctive as well.

If the Deep South is determined to position itself deliberately as “Other,” something that is separate and apart from the rest of the country, U.Va. provides a southern buffet, a place where one can dabble as a Virginia gentleman or a southern belle—trying on a lifestyle if not fully committing to a life. In her book, Bossypants, alumna Tina Fey wrote, “At the University of Virginia in 1990, I was Mexican. I looked Mexican, that is, next to my fifteen thousand blond and blue-eyed classmates, most of whom owned horses, or at least resembled them.” One friend recently described U.Va. to me as the “first layer” of the South—the safe version. U.Va. sets itself apart from its coarser cousins in the Deep South, the region that elites up North reject and that revels in this rejection. Even so, it embodies the South in all its inconsistencies and contradictions. The university is a defining institution in a state that, perhaps more than any other, has a rooted aristocracy. Wealthy donors, many of whom sit on the university’s Board of Visitors, are hugely influential. In the past, U.Va. students looked at Ole Miss, with its Confederate flags hanging in fraternity-house windows, and felt superior. Sure, you might have come across the occasional Confederate flag at U.Va. too, but they were hardly ubiquitous and were usually met with a roll of the eyes. In the Deep South, the shadowy side is actually out in the sunlight. Thomas Jefferson’s U.Va. prefers the shadows to be in the shadows.

Over the past few months, I’ve spoken to students and administrators at U.Va., and to many of the school’s alumni. They described a feeling of deep exhaustion. I have also spoken to people who were close to Jackie, the woman at the heart of the Rolling Stone story, and who were willing to address on the record for the first time how the story came together, now that the official police investigation has concluded. These young women are exhausted, too, as well as confused and angry. Visiting U.Va., you can’t escape a beleaguered defensiveness. When I walked onto the front porch of Phi Kappa Psi, the fraternity at the heart of the Rolling Stone story, one of the brothers politely gave me the name of the fraternity’s public-relations representative and said that he and others had been instructed not to talk to anyone. The notion of college kids’ being fluent in the art of public-relations deflection saddened me. But it seemed fitting, given the horrors of the year that had just ended.

II. JACKIE’S STORY
At the end of the third week of classes, in the early-morning hours of Saturday, September 13, 2014, an 18-year-old student at the university, Hannah Graham, texted her friends: “I’m coming to a party … but I’m lost.” It was the last anyone heard from her that night, or the next day—or ever. On Sunday, the police were notified. On Monday, the university’s president, Teresa Sullivan, issued a statement expressing “deep concern.” On Thursday, the police released a surveillance video of Graham and a black man walking separately on Charlottesville’s downtown pedestrian mall, and that night students held a vigil. Graham was freckled and blue-eyed. She had studied abroad and was on U.Va.’s alpine-ski and snowboard team. Many people I spoke to about the episode followed it like a grim soap opera, relating emotionally to Hannah and her parents.

Students felt unsafe. No one wanted to walk alone from the libraries. The case became even more emotionally charged when, on September 23, an African-American man who worked at the U.Va. medical center, Jesse Matthew Jr., 32, was identified as a suspect in Graham’s disappearance. The next day, Matthew was arrested and charged with abduction with “intent to defile” in the Graham case. In early October, with Hannah still missing, Hannah’s parents delivered a tearful, televised plea for her safe return. The divide between Jefferson’s privileged university and the neighborhoods that surround it moved from the back of students’ minds to the front. “We saw Charlottesville breaking into the world of U.Va.,” one student told me.

On October 18, five weeks after Graham had disappeared, Kevin Spacey was in Charlottesville to give a speech on the arts, the second in a series inaugurated a year earlier by Tina Fey. The much-anticipated Spacey event was to start at six P.M., in the John Paul Jones Arena, named for the father of hedge-fund manager and U.Va. alumnus Paul Tudor Jones II. Spacey took the stage, but members of the audience were distracted by something else: the police had found remains that would turn out to be those of Hannah Graham. Jesse Matthew Jr. was charged with her murder and will face the death penalty when he goes on trial next July. (In June of this year, Matthew was found guilty of attempted murder and sexual assault of a young woman in Fairfax, Virginia, in 2005. He faces up to three life sentences. And forensic evidence links him to the 2009 slaying of 20-year-old Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington.)

The search for Hannah Graham was still in full swing when another series of events began to roil the campus. Emily Renda, who had graduated from U.Va. in the spring of 2014 and taken a job at the university as the project coordinator for sexual-misconduct prevention, would find herself in the middle of them. Renda had arrived at U.Va. in August 2010, planning to major in religious or environmental studies. “I thought I was going to be a pastor or a park ranger,” she recalls. Her path was deflected by a sexual assault six weeks into her first year. Those first three months of college are a period that some experts refer to as the Red Zone, when new students are most vulnerable to sexual assault as well as accidents due to alcohol abuse. Renda told me she had let her perpetrator walk her home after a party, and he suggested they go back to his room until she sobered up. She agreed, and what happened next shaped the rest of her college experience.

Renda’s assault involved “pushing, hitting, and punching,” elements that, she explained, later helped her realize that the incident was not her fault. She didn’t report the assault initially, and listed for me the reasons why not: “I didn’t want to ruin someone else’s life. It was a mistake. This person had parents, too. It wasn’t worth it.” She became an intern at the university Women’s Center and an advocate for sexual-assault survivors. She also became involved in the school’s annual Take Back the Night events, whose centerpiece is a candlelight vigil during which sexual-assault survivors can speak out about their experiences. By the time Renda was ready to report to the university what had happened, her alleged attacker had transferred to a different school and the issue was moot. Under federal Title IX legislation, colleges and universities are required to have procedures in place to adjudicate all such complaints. According to the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights, in 2015 U.Va. was one of 106 colleges and universities across the country with open Title IX sexual-violence investigations. Renda never considered going to the police or the courts, believing that she didn’t have the kind of evidence she needed for a successful prosecution.

In the spring of her final year, 2014, Renda was nearly finished with her major in sociology and had been accepted to a joint law-school and master’s-in-public-health program at the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins. That was when, through her work with the sexual-assault-prevention community, she met a young woman at the university named Jackie. It was a fateful encounter. Jackie told Renda that she had been raped during her first year at U.Va., in 2012, by multiple assailants. Renda says that the conversation between the two women focused primarily on the unsupportive reactions that Jackie said she had received from friends and family, not on the alleged assault itself. Renda elected to stay at U.Va. as an intern in the Office of Student Affairs. In June 2014, Renda testified before a hearing of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, and used Jackie’s story to underscore the need for increased reporting of sexual assault. She referred to Jackie anonymously and told lawmakers that Jackie didn’t report her assault until almost a year after it happened “because immediately after the attack she confided in peers who did not believe her,” a reaction that meant that the young men she claimed had attacked her “went unpunished and remained a threat to the other students throughout that year.”

Another young woman drawn into Jackie’s orbit was Alex Pinkleton, who had come to the university in 2012. Pinkleton sailed through the Red Zone with no problem, but in November of her second year, she says, she was sexually assaulted at a party. She had been drinking, and all she remembers is eventually coming to, naked, with a friend’s friend on top of her, and asking him what had happened. She put on her clothes and walked out. Afterward, she tried to joke about it but grew increasingly uncomfortable. She says the young man she had had sex with later told her, via a private Facebook message, that she had been so drunk she had forgotten his name four times in the course of the evening. The two ran into each other at parties and were, in Pinkleton’s telling, hostile to each other. Eventually, she says, she talked about the incident with Nicole Eramo, U.Va.’s associate dean of students and the school administrator responsible for handling sexual-assault complaints. Eramo asked Pinkleton if she felt safe, how she was doing emotionally, and if she wanted to pursue a formal or informal complaint through the university system, or instead wished to report the incident to the police. Pinkleton told Eramo she didn’t know what she wanted to do and deferred any decision.

In February 2014, as Pinkleton was walking out of the bathroom in New Cabell Hall, a 1950s-era brick building with classrooms and faculty offices, a young woman stopped her. It was Jackie. Because of her role in One Less, a student sexual-assault-education group, Pinkleton was well known as a victims’ advocate. Jackie told Pinkleton her story—which allegedly involved being raped by multiple perpetrators—and asked Pinkleton about her own history. The discussion, again, focused not on the details of any assault on Jackie but on the reaction from friends and family afterward; on how to feel safe; and on what action she might take to help the healing process, such as an adjudication through U.Va. The two women ultimately agreed to make their accounts public at the next Take Back the Night rally. “We decided, ‘If you do it, I’ll do it,’ ” Pinkleton remembers. They did speak at the event, but Pinkleton says Jackie offered few details about the assault itself—it was very much in the background.

That was the state of affairs when, on July 8, 2014, after most of her fellow class-of-2014 graduates had left Charlottesville, Emily Renda received a phone call from a woman named Sabrina Rubin Erdely, a writer for Rolling Stone magazine. According to her notes—as laid out in a report by the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, which Rolling Stone asked to investigate its article after serious questions about it arose—Erdely was intending to write about rape at colleges and universities and was looking for an emblematic case that would show what it is like to be on a college campus today—where, in her view, sexual harassment and assault were so prevalent as to constitute a “rape culture.” Renda was soon to begin a new job at the university. “She was talking broadly about rape culture, and we talked about whether it was even an appropriate term,” Renda recalled, adding, “I think it is divisive”—her argument being that it makes the conversation immediately contentious when it doesn’t need to be, and therefore makes finding a response all the harder. The conversation ranged from psychology and advocacy to policy and law. Renda remembers speaking to Erdely for “four very unpleasant hours about my own experience.” In the end, Renda directed Erdely to five women, all of whom had very different stories to tell. Jackie’s was meant to represent the invalidating responses women often get from their friends and family. Another woman had successfully prosecuted her rapist through the criminal-justice system. Yet another had received protective orders through the school. She also put Erdely in touch with another woman, who had gone through the school process.

Erdely contacted multiple women but evidently came to view Jackie’s story as the most dramatic. (Erdely, through a Rolling Stone spokeswoman, has declined to comment for this story.) The next time Renda spoke with Erdely, in August, Renda learned that the writer was focusing her article narrowly on the alleged gang rape of Jackie. Renda says she regarded Erdely’s journalistic focus on a single extreme episode as misleading—an outlier, even if true. She told Erdely that Jackie’s story “wasn’t representative of campus rape as a whole.” Much of Renda’s work involved speaking to students whose cases do not include explicit violence, that occur in the context of a lot of drinking and between people who already know each other. Even though Renda didn’t have the details of Jackie’s story, she was aware that it allegedly included multiple assailants, and she worried that it could make the experience of other victims, whose stories weren’t nearly as dramatic and yet were personally devastating, seem almost trivial by comparison.

Erdely, meanwhile, had been in touch with Jackie by e-mail, and on July 14 they spoke on the phone. According to Erdely’s notes, Jackie seems to have shared her rape story with Erdely in a way she never had with Renda or Pinkleton. A fellow lifeguard, given the name “Drew,” had invited her to her first fraternity party, and after midnight he led her upstairs. As reported in Rolling Stone:

“My eyes were adjusting to the dark. And I said his name and turned around…. I heard voices and I started to scream and someone pummeled into me and told me to shut up. And that’s when I tripped and fell against the coffee table and it smashed underneath me and this other boy, who was throwing his weight on top of me. Then one of them grabbed my shoulders…. One of them put his hand over my mouth and I bit him—and he straight-up punched me in the face…. One of them said, ‘Grab its motherfucking leg.’ As soon as they said it, I knew they were going to rape me.”

Jackie’s account was graphic. She described the lifeguard’s coaching seven other young men as they raped her, seemingly as part of a fraternity pledge ritual. “Don’t you want to be a brother?” one of the young men asked another who had hesitated. Erdely told the Columbia investigators that she had been “sickened and shaken” after the call, even though she was also “a bit incredulous” about some of the details, such as a glass table shattering under Jackie as the first rapist assaulted her. The article, published in the fall, described U.Va. as an institution so defined by rape culture that women had taken to calling it “UVrApe.” Erdely portrayed U.Va. as a place that discouraged the reporting of sexual assault and infantilized survivors by telling them to focus on healing rather than justice. In the article, Nicole Eramo, the associate dean of students who served as a counselor to sexual-assault survivors, was quoted as responding this way to a question posed by Jackie about why U.Va. statistics on rape were hard to find: “Because nobody wants to send their daughter to the rape school.”

In the fall of 2014, Pinkleton felt she had somehow become a main pillar of support for Jackie as she navigated the process of telling her story publicly to a reporter for a national magazine. In Pinkleton’s recollection, Jackie appeared increasingly distressed. “She would message me at four A.M.,” Pinkleton told me. To give Jackie someone else to talk to, Pinkleton introduced her to Sara Surface, a fellow U.Va. student and a co-selection chair for One Less. The three women met in September at Para Coffee, on the Corner, the commercial strip of shops and bars where U.Va. students regularly socialize. They sat outside, and, Pinkleton says, Jackie shared certain general elements of her story with Surface, though not in anything like as much detail as she had with Sabrina Rubin Erdely. Jackie was talkative and friendly but appeared anxious about the upcoming Rolling Stone article. “I don’t think she fully grasped how big the article would become, but she was worried about it,” Pinkleton recalled. Pinkleton was worried, too. “The extra stress on someone who had been gang-raped by tons of people would be a reason someone might do something dramatic,” Pinkleton told me. “I was worried she would kill herself.”

Erdely arrived in Charlottesville for interviews two days before Hannah Graham went missing. Pinkleton told me Jackie met with Erdely alone, and then the three of them had dinner the night Graham disappeared. By that time Erdely had been reaching out to various administrators and students at U.Va. but making little headway. The administration seemed to be media-shy—a consequence, possibly, of ugly events in 2012, when some high-profile members of the Board of Visitors had led a failed coup against the university’s president, Teresa Sullivan. But it was also preoccupied: Around this time, Erdely “called to complain that no one was talking to her,” Renda told me. President Sullivan had postponed phone interviews with Erdely. Renda thought at the time, Do you know we have a student missing and an all-out manhunt for her?

There was another reason the U.Va. administration may have seemed guarded. Word was getting around—based on the nature of Erdely’s questioning and her apparent disdain for university officials—that the article was likely to be deeply critical of the administration’s handling of sexual-assault cases. “People thought it was best not to talk to her, because anything you told her was not going to be fairly represented,” Renda told me. This made Erdely’s reporting all the more difficult. At that point, Renda felt hesitant about continuing to speak to Erdely, and told me she emphasized to the reporter that anything she said reflected nothing more than her own personal experience—that she didn’t have access to case files from Jackie’s discussions with Dean Eramo or any other U.Va. administrators, could not have shared them even if she did, and knew only what Jackie was telling her. “I knew so little about the actual story,” Renda explained—meaning the specific details of the alleged gang rape.

Skeptical of U.Va. officials, Erdely appears to have relied increasingly on Jackie and her circle of supporters, but her friends knew only what they had been told, which was relatively little and not always the same thing. Although Jackie had told Erdely her story in graphic detail, she wasn’t always eager to maintain contact with the reporter. Jackie seems to have cut off contact with Erdely, or tried to. At one point, Renda says, she received an e-mail from Erdely asking if she had heard from Jackie lately, because Erdely hadn’t. After getting Erdely’s message, Renda contacted Jackie directly and told her that if the story was becoming too much she could drop out of participation at any time. Jackie told Renda that she was fine—just stressed out by school. Jackie wavered on whether she should name the fraternity explicitly. Pinkleton felt that Erdely was trying to manipulate Jackie into cooperating, though Pinkleton’s view of the dynamics would gradually become more complicated. Pinkleton remembers contacting Erdely on one occasion to tell her that Jackie didn’t want her name in the story. Erdely called back, confused, saying she had just spoken to Jackie, who did want her name in the story. “At first I thought Sabrina was manipulating us,” Pinkleton told me. Later, after everything unraveled, she came to a different conclusion: “Jackie was manipulating us as well.”

In October, according to Pinkleton, arguments and tensions mounted among Jackie, Surface, Pinkleton, and Erdely. Surface and Pinkleton were trying to shield Jackie, or help Jackie shield herself. For her part, Jackie seemed uncertain about how she wanted to be represented in the story. She went from not wanting to be named at all to agreeing to the use of just her first name. Pinkleton said, “She started evading questions from us and confessing more to Sabrina.” And Pinkleton went on: “I just feel like she really started telling us things that didn’t make sense. We offered her help in standing up to Sabrina, but she didn’t want it.” Pinkleton noted a few worrying signs as the story was closing and Rolling Stone was calling to confirm various pieces of information: “I remember telling the fact-checkers that ‘UVrApe’ was nothing I had ever heard of.” Other rape-prevention advocates at the school had never heard the term, either.

III. THE UNRAVELING
The week the Rolling Stone story came out, the four women—Renda, Surface, Pinkleton, and Jackie—were scrambling to prepare for what they suspected would be a bombshell. On Tuesday, November 18, a friend of Sara Surface’s found a copy of the magazine on a newsstand. The friend took pictures of the pages with her cell phone and sent them to Surface, who downloaded them onto a laptop. All four women had been anticipating the story for months. Some of them had come to distrust Erdely. Nobody wanted to read it alone. They wanted to see one another’s reactions and talk about it afterward. “Everybody come to my apartment now,” texted Renda. She lived off campus, far enough away from most student housing to feel truly removed. Everyone arrived right away. “We were really nervous, and we knew it was going to be really bad,” Pinkleton told me. Bad for U.Va. and bad for Dean Eramo, whom the women, save perhaps Jackie, regarded as a mentor.

Once the women had gathered, Renda read the story aloud, detail by harrowing detail. Jackie was identified by her first name only, and the leader of her alleged rapists, as noted, was given the pseudonym “Drew.” Three allegedly unsympathetic friends whom Jackie had sought out in the aftermath of the attack were also given pseudonyms—“Cindy,” “Randall,” and “Andy.” Renda read aloud the story of Jackie’s brutal gang rape at the hands of seven men at the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house. She read aloud how, after the attack, her friends and U.Va. officials had discouraged Jackie from reporting the incident to the police or the university. As some of the women had feared, Dean Eramo became the face of an administration that was depicted as unsympathetic and indifferent to a pervasive rape culture.

As Pinkleton listened to the horrific details, she said, she thought, Oh, I didn’t hear that, and Oh, I didn’t know that. While they were aware of the outlines of the story, much of the specific information was being imparted to them for the first time. Looking back on it now, Pinkleton remembers that Jackie seemed upset as Renda read the story but did not break down. At one point, Pinkleton reached over to pat Jackie’s back to comfort her. Renda told me that hearing the story read aloud was “like being hit over the head with a baseball bat,” because the details of Jackie’s rape were so shocking and because the dean had been treated so unfairly. After Renda finished reading, Jackie’s boyfriend, who had driven her to Renda’s apartment, took her home. Once Jackie had departed, the three women left behind looked at one another, realizing that there was a lot they didn’t know about what had happened to Jackie. And maybe a lot they didn’t know about Jackie.

The next day, “A Rape on Campus” was on nearly every laptop before, during, and after classes at U.Va. There were countless “I stand with Jackie” messages on Facebook, Yik Yak, and other social media. There was a lot of anger at Jackie’s friends—“Cindy,” “Randall,” and “Andy”—who were portrayed as unsupportive in Rolling Stone. Renda described to me the protests that followed the story. Vandals painted UVA CENTER FOR RAPE STUDIES on the side of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house. They threw rocks through the windows. The Phi Kappa Psi brothers moved out. Especially distressing to Renda was a sign she saw at a protest march: PROTECT OUR WOMEN. The sign seemed to epitomize all the “damsel in distress” tropes that women like Renda had been trying to dispel—a difficult task anywhere but particularly at a place like U.Va., with its ethic, in some quarters, of chivalrous paternalism. “I remember feeling really overwhelmed and like this was going to set back all the positive work that had been done,” Renda told me. There were only two types of women in Erdely’s story, she explained: bimbos and victims. “There were no women of agency,” she said. One key issue from Renda’s perspective was that much of her work had been trying to help women who had suffered a much less violent, much less dramatic version of Jackie’s story—the so-called gray area of rape, one that, Renda says, is all too common at U.Va. and other college campuses. For her part, Pinkleton was annoyed that she and Surface weren’t identified as working to prevent sexual assault at U.Va., nor was anyone else. Erdely “acted like there were no feminists or anyone supporting survivors,” Pinkleton told me. Pinkleton was also upset that Erdely “had destroyed the administration’s credibility and said”—falsely—“that there is no one at this school who will listen to your story and believe you.”

Jackie’s circle of supporters were in an unenviable situation. They ostensibly knew more than anyone about what had happened to Jackie—but began to appreciate that they really didn’t know what they knew, or whether what they thought they knew was true. At some point during the two weeks that followed the story’s publication, Jackie told Pinkleton and Surface what she claimed to be the real name of “Drew,” the alleged ringleader of her rape. Pinkleton says that, when she and Surface looked him up, they realized he didn’t fit the story. There was no one by his name who was a member of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity. Then it began to get worse: a Washington Post reporter, T. Rees Shapiro—one of the many reporters who had descended on U.Va.—was attempting to speak to the student Jackie identified as “Drew.” “We realized the chances of it happening at Phi Kappa Psi at that point were slim to none,” said Pinkleton. And they realized that they had, in Pinkleton’s words, a “moral obligation” to tell Shapiro about discrepancies in Jackie’s story. Sara Surface added, “At a certain point Alex and I had to start making decisions about Jackie versus every other survivor in our cause. It wasn’t a distinction that we as advocates ever thought we would need to make.”

On Tuesday, December 2, two weeks after the Rolling Stone story’s release, Surface and Pinkleton had dinner with Jackie and told her they were concerned that the person Jackie had identified to them didn’t match the description of the Drew character named in the story. Pinkleton says that Jackie avoided answering their questions. She began to cry and told them she was stressed and tired and overwhelmed. On Thursday, December 4, Surface and Pinkleton met with Shapiro, the Post reporter, and essentially compared notes. They had all identified what seemed like discrepancies in Jackie’s story. “We just sat there, like, ‘Holy shit—what is going on?,’ ” Pinkleton told me. “Meanwhile, Sara and I are, minds blown, but we also felt like we had betrayed her. Did we just have it wrong?”

Later that Thursday was the traditional “Lighting of the Lawn,” when students string lights, sing, play music, and have a party. Pinkleton, Surface, and Renda missed the lighting and instead met with Jackie at her apartment. “We needed to tell her that the Washington Post article was coming out and destroying her story the very next day, because we didn’t want mental-breakdown suicide going on,” Pinkleton told me. The meeting included a university-affiliated counselor in the event some sort of emergency arose.

“We all got together to say, ‘Jackie, this is what’s coming. How are you going to prepare for this?,’ ” Renda told me. What was coming, they feared, was a virulent backlash against a false accusation—and an onslaught of victim blaming. The women wanted to support Jackie, because they sensed that what was about to follow would be difficult. They also, gingerly, wanted to get some explanations for the inconsistencies in her story. They told her that the Post story would be out soon, and she said she knew. Pinkleton lost her temper. She told Jackie she should stop thinking about herself and start thinking about the damage a discredited story would do to the movement against sexual assault. Pinkleton told me that the conversation was heated and that she doesn’t remember what everyone said, but she does remember that at one point Jackie, frustrated, told them: “I don’t even know why I talk to you guys anymore. Sara and Alex, you all have been such shitty friends lately.” The women told Jackie that Shapiro had offered her one last chance to tell him what really happened.

Later that night they met with Shapiro in an academic building, where Jackie repeated her story again, including details such as the color of the alarm clock. To Pinkleton, the level of detail about the room seemed unusually vivid. Jackie was adamant: what she had told Erdely was what really happened. “That is my story,” Jackie said.

That night, Sabrina Rubin Erdely, who had been engaged in her own effort to find Drew and who had just spoken to Jackie, called Pinkleton at one A.M. “I need to hear from you if her story was true,” she said, in Pinkleton’s recollection. “And I just said, ‘I don’t think you should have written the article.’ ” The following morning, December 5, Pinkleton said, she received another call from Erdely. “ ‘I’m writing the retraction right now. I just need to hear one more time what you think,’ ” Pinkleton told me. “She started bawling and said, ‘I am going to lose my job.’ ” That same day, The Washington Post wrote that Phi Kappa Psi said that it had not held an event the night of Jackie’s alleged rape, and that the “friends” who had spoken to Jackie then had heard details of her attack that differed from what was in the Rolling Stone article. Rolling Stone’s managing editor, Will Dana, issued a statement later that day in which the magazine admitted to mistakes in the story and apologized to readers. Dana would leave the magazine in August.

In the next week, the Post identified further holes in the story. The friends of Jackie’s provided Shapiro with text messages from Jackie that made it seem that she may have simply invented the Drew character in the Rolling Stone article. Some speculated about another source for certain details in Jackie’s account: in 2011, a U.Va. alumna named Liz Seccuro published a book in which she described how, as a student in 1984, in the midst of a date function at Phi Kappa Psi, she had ventured upstairs, been drugged, dragged into a room, and raped repeatedly.

Eramo has sued Erdely and Rolling Stone for nearly $8 million for the way she is described and quoted in the story, which she has claimed is false and defamatory. Three Phi Kappa Psi brothers, one of whom lived in a second-floor bedroom of the fraternity house, have sued Rolling Stone and Erdely for causing them “mental anguish and severe emotional distress,” even though none were named in Erdely’s story. Renda and Pinkleton, not to mention Jackie, have all been personally attacked by media outlets for their role in the article.

Shortly after the publication of Rolling Stone’s statement, Jackie vanished. Renda, Surface, and Pinkleton have not heard from her in the nine months since her story fell apart. Approached through her attorney, Jackie has declined to answer questions. For Renda, the rest of the year has been “all hell and hopelessness.” The experience has made her abandon the idea of working with sexual-assault survivors, she told me. She is headed to law school—electing to go to Berkeley, as far away from U.Va. as she can get. “I don’t want to say it’s been the worst year of my life, but it has been the worst year of my life.”

IV. “FARM EQUIPMENT”
When the Rolling Stone story appeared, my U.Va. friends and I were transfixed by it—and took the account at face value. There was a reason for that. Extreme as Jackie’s story was, it touched on something recognizable about U.Va. While a fraternity pledging ritual that involved gang rape was shocking, there were certain aspects of U.Va.—in its history and its rituals—that could be characterized as debauched, dehumanizing, or just plain bizarre.

When I was applying to college, my brother, who had gone to Princeton, was in his first year at U.Va. law school. My mother told me she thought I’d like the young women better at U.Va. than at Princeton, and I applied early and was accepted. I arrived with a flowered bedspread and a curling iron. I dressed up for football games and, in the spring of my first year, pledged a sorority. We attended fraternity mixers where we drank “grain punch” scooped from a garbage can. I heard stories of fraternity hazing and secret societies. On the night I was inducted into Tri Delt, we drank a lot and wore blindfolds, and I think we may have had to wear our bras outside our blouses, but only for a short time, and only in the company of our sorority sisters. Any hazing was halfhearted. There was no forced vomiting or the occasional simulated fellatio on bottles—as there was, however, for the women’s society at U.Va. known as Thursdays, a “secret” society that was essentially a drinking club. There was no staged fighting or bodily penetration with fruit—as I had heard about, however, from friends in the male drinking society known as Eli Banana, which at one point in the late 19th century was disbanded for its behavior (but then allowed to re-materialize). On bid night—when secret societies tap their initiates—some of the drinking societies have been known to gather privately in a basement for a cockfight. This is the kind of atmosphere where someone could be forgiven for thinking that misogynistic or violent episodes might occur.

“Pimps and Hos” mixers between fraternities and sororities were still pretty common when I was a student, and when I started reporting this story I was certain that I didn’t know anyone who had been sexually assaulted at U.Va. That changed within hours of calling friends, and I came to understand that what passed for a “bad hookup” when I was in college is today what we would rightly call rape—which was precisely Renda’s point. We just weren’t talking much about any of it. When we did talk about it, we tried to laugh it off. I’m sure this is true at most colleges. But U.Va. has a particularly challenging past. It was among the last of the flagship state universities in the country to become co-educational (in 1970), and did so even then under the threat of a federal lawsuit. When women were first admitted, U.Va. men referred to female classmates as “U-bags.”

An act of violence was responsible for the creation of the vaunted Honor System in the first place. During a disturbance in 1840, a masked student shot and killed a professor who had tried to restore order. The Honor System at U.Va., today overseen by a 27-student Honor Committee, grew out of that incident: students agreed to “vouch” for one another and to voluntarily report episodes of misbehavior. Since 1998, U.Va. has expelled 187 students for lying, cheating, or stealing, but not a single person has been kicked out for sexual assault. The deliberations are confidential, and there have been allegations both of vigilante justice and of a double standard at play. In 1990, The Washington Post, in an article exploring the Honor System, reported that in 1988 J. Brady Lum, the Honor Committee chair at the time, was accused of plagiarism in a letter he wrote to incoming students introducing them, ironically, to the Honor System. He was cleared by an investigation. Lum’s successor, Lonnie Chafin, had been convicted of an assault involving the Charlottesville police. He was voted off the Honor Committee but not expelled from the university.
The opening pages of the Rolling Stone story.
The Columbia report on the Rolling Stone article, which found failures at all levels of the magazine’s editorial process, was made public in early April. By then the university was caught up in yet another controversy. The day after Saint Patrick’s Day, U.Va. students started seeing a cell-phone video from the night before pop up in their social-media feeds. It showed a fellow U.Va. student, Martese Johnson, who is black, lying on the pavement outside a bar on the Corner, his face bloodied, with two white A.B.C. agents on his back. He kept yelling, “I go to U.Va.!” It was a linguistic amulet that was both heartbreaking and ineffective.

The issue of race has never been faced squarely by the university, just as Jefferson never faced it squarely. Johnson is an honor student, heavily involved in extra-curricular activities, and one of only two African-Americans on the Honor Committee. Virginia’s population is 20 percent black, but the percentage of African-American students at U.Va. has dropped from 12 percent in the 1990s to around 6 percent today.

Most black U.Va. students I spoke to told me that they face a choice when they arrive in Charlottesville. They have to decide whether they want to be part of the black culture of U.Va.—which has its own sororities and fraternities, its own clubs, and, effectively, because of self-segregation, historically, even its own bus stop—or be part of the white culture, which entails joining predominantly white organizations such as the predominantly white fraternities and sororities and the predominantly white debating societies and other clubs. U.Va. throws a “spring fling” for incoming black students, hosted by the office of admissions. “A lot of African-Americans come with a bit of apprehension as to whether there is a place for them” at an institution with “a southern, white, aristocratic history,” Vendarryl Jenkins, an African-American second-year student, told me. The spring fling is designed to show “there is a community here for you.”

The white and black communities don’t mix much. Memories of those “Pimps and Hos” mixers can’t help. Jenkins told me of the night last fall when Martese Johnson, who happened to be a friend of his, was tapped to be a member of the secret society IMP. Not many African-Americans are tapped for secret societies, but Johnson brought Jenkins and a few other black friends to the party for new members. At first, everyone, black and white, was in the main room of the house hosting the party, listening to music together and dancing. “As the party continued, a slow separation began to take form,” Jenkins later wrote in an unpublished account of that night, which he shared with me. “Black students remained in the main room, lights off, blasting hip-hop, and dancing jovially in celebration.” The white students migrated into a separate room, brought up the lights, and turned on Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” “with the door shut.”

Last December, black students at U.Va. protested the decision not to indict a police officer involved in the death of Eric Garner, an African-American who died on Staten Island after police arrested him for selling loose cigarettes and the officer held him in a choke hold. Among other things, the black students marched through the university’s libraries. Virulently racist messages soon appeared on Yik Yak. “I hope the people who protested ride back home on the back of the bus,” one commenter wrote. Another, referring to the protesters as if they were field slaves on a plantation, wrote, “Did anyone just see all that farm equipment walk through Clemons?” Jenkins told me, “That is what people are saying in private. It’s not what you see on a tour of grounds.” All this occurred before Martese Johnson was turned away from a bar on the Corner and found himself set upon by law-enforcement officers. Johnson spent several hours in jail and was released that morning. All charges against him have since been dropped. No charges were lodged against the A.B.C. agents. A crucial six-minute segment of a police surveillance video had apparently gone missing.

There is a temptation among many in Charlottesville to blame the national media for the sheer intensity of this year’s events, and it’s certainly true that the continual presence of camera crews has not been a positive inducement. Others voice what I think of as the Pantene theory of U.Va.’s situation: some people dislike the school in part because it’s beautiful. If nothing else, the year has been hard to explain and translate to outsiders. One student told me about a conversation she had had with a former high-school teacher. “How’s U.Va.?” he asked her. The student replied, “What do you want to talk about—murder, rape, or beating?” For all that, students I spoke to said time and again that they loved U.Va. I can understand why. Though fraternities and sororities dominate the popular image of the school, only 30 percent of students participate in Greek life. Two of the most prestigious and secret of the secret societies, the Sevens and the Z’s, are primarily philanthropic in nature, not sowers of drunken discord. An active minority, a layer of elites within the university’s elite clubs and other institutions, sets an inescapable school-wide tone, but a great variety of experiences are available to students at U.Va., and there are many communities to join. The people I met there remain some of my dearest friends today.

But the university is also a petri dish of issues facing society at large, and a little more intensely so, given its location and its special history. The events of the past year forced a reckoning of sorts, and some students and professors I spoke to said they were optimistic that the trauma would bring positive changes: it’s an example of that Cavalier instinct to look for solutions. But the feeling was by no means universal. In one dialogue group that Jenkins moderated last semester, a young woman said to him, “I just want everything to go back to normal.” A return to normal is not what U.Va. needs. Normal is part of the problem. It was Jefferson himself who said that he liked the dreams of the future better than the history of the past. If there’s anything U.Va. should be able to get behind, it’s a directive from Mr. Jefferson.

A Rape on Campus: A Brutal Assault and Struggle for Justice at UVA

Jackie was just starting her freshman year at the University of Virginia when she was brutally assaulted by seven men at a frat party. When she tried to hold them accountable, a whole new kind of abuse began

By Sabrina Rubin Erdely | November 19, 2014

From Rugby Road to Vinegar Hill, we’re gonna get drunk tonight

The faculty’s afraid of us, they know we’re in the right

So fill up your cups, your loving cups, as full as full can be

As long as love and liquor last, we’ll drink to the U of V

—”Rugby Road,” traditional University of Virginia fight song

Sipping from a plastic cup, Jackie grimaced, then discreetly spilled her spiked punch onto the sludgy fraternity-house floor. The University of Virginia freshman wasn’t a drinker, but she didn’t want to seem like a goody-goody at her very first frat party – and she especially wanted to impress her date, the handsome Phi Kappa Psi brother who’d brought her here. Jackie was sober but giddy with discovery as she looked around the room crammed with rowdy strangers guzzling beer and dancing to loud music. She smiled at her date, whom we’ll call Drew, a good-looking junior – or in UVA parlance, a third-year – and he smiled enticingly back.

“Want to go upstairs, where it’s quieter?” Drew shouted into her ear, and Jackie’s heart quickened. She took his hand as he threaded them out of the crowded room and up a staircase.

Four weeks into UVA’s 2012 school year, 18-year-old Jackie was crushing it at college. A chatty, straight-A achiever from a rural Virginia town, she’d initially been intimidated by UVA’s aura of preppy success, where throngs of toned, tanned and overwhelmingly blond students fanned across a landscape of neoclassical brick buildings, hurrying to classes, clubs, sports, internships, part-time jobs, volunteer work and parties; Jackie’s orientation leader had warned her that UVA students’ schedules were so packed that “no one has time to date – people just hook up.” But despite her reservations, Jackie had flung herself into campus life, attending events, joining clubs, making friends and, now, being asked on an actual date. She and Drew had met while working lifeguard shifts together at the university pool, and Jackie had been floored by Drew’s invitation to dinner, followed by a “date function” at his fraternity, Phi Kappa Psi. The “upper tier” frat had a reputation of tremendous wealth, and its imposingly large house overlooked a vast manicured field, giving “Phi Psi” the undisputed best real estate along UVA’s fraternity row known as Rugby Road.

Rape on Campus

Jackie had taken three hours getting ready, straightening her long, dark, wavy hair. She’d congratulated herself on her choice of a tasteful red dress with a high neckline. Now, climbing the frat-house stairs with Drew, Jackie felt excited. Drew ushered Jackie into a bedroom, shutting the door behind them. The room was pitch-black inside. Jackie blindly turned toward Drew, uttering his name. At that same moment, she says, she detected movement in the room – and felt someone bump into her. Jackie began to scream.

“Shut up,” she heard a man’s voice say as a body barreled into her, tripping her backward and sending them both crashing through a low glass table. There was a heavy person on top of her, spreading open her thighs, and another person kneeling on her hair, hands pinning down her arms, sharp shards digging into her back, and excited male voices rising all around her. When yet another hand clamped over her mouth, Jackie bit it, and the hand became a fist that punched her in the face. The men surrounding her began to laugh. For a hopeful moment Jackie wondered if this wasn’t some collegiate prank. Perhaps at any second someone would flick on the lights and they’d return to the party.

“Grab its motherfucking leg,” she heard a voice say. And that’s when Jackie knew she was going to be raped.

She remembers every moment of the next three hours of agony, during which, she says, seven men took turns raping her, while two more – her date, Drew, and another man – gave instruction and encouragement. She remembers how the spectators swigged beers, and how they called each other nicknames like Armpit and Blanket. She remembers the men’s heft and their sour reek of alcohol mixed with the pungency of marijuana. Most of all, Jackie remembers the pain and the pounding that went on and on.

As the last man sank onto her, Jackie was startled to recognize him: He attended her tiny anthropology discussion group. He looked like he was going to cry or puke as he told the crowd he couldn’t get it up. “Pussy!” the other men jeered. “What, she’s not hot enough for you?” Then they egged him on: “Don’t you want to be a brother?” “We all had to do it, so you do, too.” Someone handed her classmate a beer bottle. Jackie stared at the young man, silently begging him not to go through with it. And as he shoved the bottle into her, Jackie fell into a stupor, mentally untethering from the brutal tableau, her mind leaving behind the bleeding body under assault on the floor.

When Jackie came to, she was alone. It was after 3 a.m. She painfully rose from the floor and ran shoeless from the room. She emerged to discover the Phi Psi party still surreally under way, but if anyone noticed the barefoot, disheveled girl hurrying down a side staircase, face beaten, dress spattered with blood, they said nothing. Disoriented, Jackie burst out a side door, realized she was lost, and dialed a friend, screaming, “Something bad happened. I need you to come and find me!” Minutes later, her three best friends on campus – two boys and a girl (whose names are changed) – arrived to find Jackie on a nearby street corner, shaking. “What did they do to you? What did they make you do?” Jackie recalls her friend Randall demanding. Jackie shook her head and began to cry. The group looked at one another in a panic. They all knew about Jackie’s date; the Phi Kappa Psi house loomed behind them. “We have to get her to the hospital,” Randall said.

Their other two friends, however, weren’t convinced. “Is that such a good idea?” she recalls Cindy asking. “Her reputation will be shot for the next four years.” Andy seconded the opinion, adding that since he and Randall both planned to rush fraternities, they ought to think this through. The three friends launched into a heated discussion about the social price of reporting Jackie’s rape, while Jackie stood beside them, mute in her bloody dress, wishing only to go back to her dorm room and fall into a deep, forgetful sleep. Detached, Jackie listened as Cindy prevailed over the group: “She’s gonna be the girl who cried ‘rape,’ and we’ll never be allowed into any frat party again.”

Two years later, Jackie, now a third-year, is worried about what might happen to her once this article comes out. Greek life is huge at UVA, with nearly one-third of undergrads belonging to a fraternity or sorority, so Jackie fears the backlash could be big – a “shitshow” predicted by her now-former friend Randall, who, citing his loyalty to his own frat, declined to be interviewed. But her concerns go beyond taking on her alleged assailants and their fraternity. Lots of people have discouraged her from sharing her story, Jackie tells me with a pained look, including the trusted UVA dean to whom Jackie reported her gang-rape allegations more than a year ago. On this deeply loyal campus, even some of Jackie’s closest friends see her going public as tantamount to betrayal.

“One of my roommates said, ‘Do you want to be responsible for something that’s gonna paint UVA in a bad light?’ ” says Jackie, poking at a vegan burger at a restaurant on the Corner, UVA’s popular retail strip. “But I said, ‘UVA has flown under the radar for so long, someone has to say something about it, or else it’s gonna be this system that keeps perpetuating!’ ” Jackie frowns. “My friend just said, ‘You have to remember where your loyalty lies.'”

From reading headlines today, one might think colleges have suddenly become hotbeds of protest by celebrated anti-rape activists. But like most colleges across America, genteel University of Virginia has no radical feminist culture seeking to upend the patriarchy. There are no red-tape-wearing protests like at Harvard, no “sex-positive” clubs promoting the female orgasm like at Yale, no mattress-hauling performance artists like at Columbia, and certainly no SlutWalks. UVA isn’t an edgy or progressive campus by any stretch. The pinnacle of its polite activism is its annual Take Back the Night vigil, which on this campus of 21,000 students attracts an audience of less than 500 souls. But the dearth of attention isn’t because rape doesn’t happen in Charlottesville. It’s because at UVA, rapes are kept quiet, both by students – who brush off sexual assaults as regrettable but inevitable casualties of their cherished party culture – and by an administration that critics say is less concerned with protecting students than it is with protecting its own reputation from scandal. Some UVA women, so sickened by the university’s culture of hidden sexual violence, have taken to calling it “UVrApe.”

“University of Virginia thinks they’re above the law,” says UVA grad and victims-rights advocate Liz Seccuro. “They go to such lengths to protect themselves. There’s a national conversation about sexual assault, but nothing at UVA is changing.”

  1. Daniel Carter, who as former director of public policy for the advocacy group Clery Center for Security on Campus is a national expert on college safety, points out that UVA’s sexual assault problems are not much worse than other schools; if anything, he says, the depressing reality is that UVA’s situation is likely the norm. Decades of awareness programming haven’t budged the prevalence of campus rape: One in five women is sexually assaulted in college, though only about 12 percent report it to police. Spurred by a wave of activism, the Obama administration has stepped up pressure on colleges, announcing Title IX investigations of 86 schools suspected of denying students their equal right to education by inadequately handling sexual-violence complaints; if found in violation, each school runs the risk of financial penalties, including the nuclear option (which has never been deployed) of having its federal funding revoked.

The University of Virginia is one of the 86 schools now under federal investigation, but it has more reason to worry than most of its peers. Because, unlike most schools under scrutiny, where complaints are at issue, UVA is one of only 12 schools under a sweeping investigation known as “compliance review”: a proactive probe launched by the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights itself, triggered by concerns about deep-rooted issues. “They are targeted efforts to go after very serious concerns,” says Office of Civil Rights assistant secretary Catherine Lhamon. “We don’t open compliance reviews unless we have something that we think merits it.”

UVA says it has been complying fully with the investigation. But Carter notes that UVA and other elite schools tend not to respond well to criticism and sanctify tradition above all else. “That’s common to more prestigious institutions,” Carter says.

Prestige is at the core of UVA’s identity. Although a public school, its grounds of red-brick, white-columned buildings designed by founder Thomas Jefferson radiate old-money privilege, footnoted by the graffiti of UVA’s many secret societies, whose insignias are neatly painted everywhere. At $10,000 a year, in-state tuition is a quarter the cost of the Ivies, but UVA tends to attract affluent students, and through aggressive fundraising boasts an endowment of $5 billion, on par with Cornell. “Wealthy parents are the norm,” says former UVA dean John Foubert. On top of all that, UVA enjoys a reputation as one of the best schools in the country, not to mention a campus so brimming with fun that in 2012 – the year of Jackie’s rape – Playboy crowned it the nation’s number-one party school. Students hold themselves up to that standard: studious by day, wild by night. “The most impressive person at UVA is the person who gets straight A’s and goes to all the parties,” explains fourth-year student Brian Head. Partying traditions fuse the decorum of the Southern aristocracy with binge drinking: At Cavalier football tailgates, the dress code is “girls in pearls, guys in ties” while students guzzle handles of vodka. Not for nothing is a UVA student nicknamed a Wahoo, as undergrads like to explain; though derived from a long-ago yell from Cavalier fans, a wahoo is also a fish that can drink twice its own body weight.

Rape on Campus

Wahoos are enthralled to be at UVA and can’t wait to tell you the reasons why, beginning, surprisingly, with Thomas Jefferson, whose lore is so powerfully woven into everyday UVA life that you practically expect to glimpse the man still walking the grounds in his waistcoat and pantaloons. Nearly every student I interviewed found a way to mention “TJ,” speaking with zeal about their founding father’s vision for an “academical village” in the idyllic setting of the Blue Ridge Mountains. They burble about UVA’s honor code, a solemn pledge not to lie, cheat or steal; students are expected to snitch on violators, who are expelled. UVA’s emphasis on honor is so pronounced that since 1998, 183 people have been expelled for honor-code violations such as cheating on exams. And yet paradoxically, not a single student at UVA has ever been expelled for sexual assault.

“Think about it,” says Susan Russell, whose UVA daughter’s sexual-assault report helped trigger a previous federal investigation. “In what world do you get kicked out for cheating, but if you rape someone, you can stay?”

Attorney Wendy Murphy, who has filed Title IX complaints and lawsuits against schools including UVA, argues that in matters of sexual violence, Ivy League and Division I schools’ fixation with prestige is their downfall. “These schools love to pretend they protect the children as if they were their own, but that’s not true: They’re interested in money,” Murphy says. “In these situations, the one who gets the most protection is either a wealthy kid, a legacy kid or an athlete. The more privileged he is, the more likely the woman has to die before he’s held accountable.” Indeed, UVA is the same campus where the volatile relationship of lacrosse star George Huguely V and his girlfriend Yeardley Love was seen as unremarkable – his jealous rages, fanned by over-the-top drinking – until the 2010 day he kicked open her door and beat her to death.

UVA president Teresa Sullivan denies the administration sweeps sexual assault under the rug. “If we’re trying to hide the issue, we’re not doing a very good job of it,” she says, noting that this past February UVA hosted the first-ever sexual-assault summit for college administrators. It’s true that recently, while under close government scrutiny, the school has made some encouraging changes, including designating most UVA authority figures as mandatory reporters of sexual assault and teaming up with student activists to create a bystander-intervention campaign. Students praise UVA’s deans as caring folks who answer late-night calls from victims and even make emergency-room visits.

Rape on Campus

And yet the UVA public-relations team seemed unenthused about this article, canceling my interview with the head of UVA’s Sexual Misconduct Board, and forbidding other administrators from cooperating; even students seemed infected by their anxiety about how members of the administration might appear. And when President Sullivan was at last made available for an interview, her most frequently invoked answer to my specific questions about sexual-assault handling at UVA – while two other UVA staffers sat in on the recorded call – was “I don’t know.”

All you girls from Mary Washington

and RMWC, never let a Cavalier an inch above your knee.

He’ll take you to his fraternity house and fill you full of beer.

And soon you’ll be the mother  of a bastard Cavalier!

“Rugby Road”

Two weeks after Jackie’s rape, she ran into Drew during her lifeguard shift at the UVA pool. “Hey, Jackie,” Drew said, startling her. “Are you ignoring me?” She’d switched her shift in the hopes of never seeing him again. Since the Phi Kappa Psi party, she’d barely left her dorm room, fearful of glimpsing one of her attackers. Jackie stared at Drew, unable to speak. “I wanted to thank you for the other night,” Drew said. “I had a great time.”

Jackie left her shift early, saying she wasn’t feeling well. Then she walked back to her dorm and crawled under the covers. She didn’t go to classes for the rest of the week, and soon quit her lifeguarding job – the first time she could remember quitting anything. She would never again return to the Anthropology course she shared with one of her assailants. She was constantly on the edge of panic, plagued by flashbacks – and disgusted by her own naiveté. She obsessed over what easy prey she’d been, as the attention-starved freshman who for weeks drank up Drew’s flirtations. “I still grapple with ‘Did I do something that could have been construed as that’s what I wanted?’ ” she says.

Before Jackie left for college, her parents – a Vietnam vet and retired military contractor, and a stay-at-home mom – had lectured her about avoiding the perils of the social scene, stressing the importance of her studies, since Jackie hoped to get into medical school. Jackie had a strained relationship with her father, in whose eyes she’d never felt good enough, and always responded by exceeding expectations – honor roll, swim team, first-chair violin – becoming the role model for her two younger brothers. Jackie had been looking forward to college as an escape – a place to, even, defy her parents’ wishes and go to a frat party. “And I guess they were right,” she says bitterly.

She was having an especially difficult time figuring out how to process that awful night, because her small social circle seemed so underwhelmed. For the first month of school, Jackie had latched onto a crew of lighthearted social strivers, and her pals were now impatient for Jackie to rejoin the merriment. “You’re still upset about that?” Andy asked one Friday night when Jackie was crying. Cindy, a self-declared hookup queen, said she didn’t see why Jackie was so bent out of shape. “Why didn’t you have fun with it?” Cindy asked. “A bunch of hot Phi Psi guys?” One of Jackie’s friends told her, unconcerned, “Andy said you had a bad experience at a frat, and you’ve been a baby ever since.”

“SOME OF MY HALLMATES WERE SKEPTICAL,” SAYS ONE SURVIVOR OF RAPE. “THEY WERE SILENT AND AVOIDED ME AFTERWARDS. IT MADE ME DOUBT MYSELF.”

That reaction of dismissal, downgrading and doubt is a common theme UVA rape survivors hear, including from women. “Some of my hallmates were skeptical,” recalls recent grad Emily Renda, who says that weeks into her first year she was raped after a party. “They were silent and avoided me afterwards. It made me doubt myself.” Other students encounter more overt hostility, as when a first-year student confided her assault to a friend. “She said she thought I was just looking for attention,” says the undergrad. Shrugging off a rape or pointing fingers at the victim can be a self-protective maneuver for women, a form of wishful thinking to reassure themselves they could never be so vulnerable to violence. For men, skepticism is a form of self-protection too. For much of their lives, they’ve looked forward to the hedonistic fun of college, bearing every expectation of booze and no-strings sex. A rape heralds the uncomfortable idea that all that harmless mayhem may not be so harmless after all. Easier, then, to assume the girl is lying, even though studies indicate that false rape reports account for, at most, eight percent of reports.

And so at UVA, where social status is paramount, outing oneself as a rape victim can be a form of social suicide. “I don’t know many people who are engrossed in the party scene and have spoken out about their sexual assaults,” says third-year student Sara Surface. After all, no one climbs the social ladder only to cast themselves back down. Emily Renda, for one, quickly figured out that few classmates were sympathetic to her plight, and instead channeled her despair into hard partying. “My drinking didn’t stand out,” says Renda, who often ended her nights passed out on a bathroom floor. “It does make you wonder how many others are doing what I did: drinking to self-medicate.”

By the middle of her first semester, Jackie’s alarm would ring and ring in her dorm room until one of her five suitemates would pad down the hall to turn it off. Jackie would barely stir in her bed. “That was when we realized she was even there,” remembers suitemate Rachel Soltis. “At the beginning of the year, she seemed like a normal, happy girl, always with friends. Then her door was closed all the time. We just figured she was out.” Long since abandoned by her original crew, Jackie had slept through half a semester’s worth of classes and had bought a length of rope with which to hang herself. Instead, as the semester crawled to an end, she called her mother. “Come and get me,” Jackie told her, crying. “I need your help.”

The first weeks of freshman year are when students are most vulnerable to sexual assault. Spend a Friday night in mid-September walking along Rugby Road at UVA, and you can begin to see why. Hundreds of women in crop tops and men in khaki shorts stagger between handsome fraternity houses, against a call-and-response soundtrack of “Whoo!” and breaking glass. “Do you know where Delta Sig is?” a girl slurs, sloshed. Behind her, one of her dozen or so friends stumbles into the street, sending a beer bottle shattering. (“Whoo!” calls a far-away voice.)

“These are all first-years,” narrates one of my small group of upperclasswomen guides. We walk the curving length of tree-lined Rugby Road as they explain the scene. The women rattle off which one is known as the “roofie frat,” where supposedly four girls have been drugged and raped, and at which house a friend had a recent “bad experience,” the Wahoo euphemism for sexual assault. Studies have shown that fraternity men are three times as likely to commit rape, and a spate of recent high-profile cases illustrates the dangers that can lurk at frat parties, like a University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee frat accused of using color-coded hand stamps as a signal to roofie their guests, and this fall’s suspension of Brown University’s chapter of Phi Kappa Psi – of all fraternities – after a partygoer tested positive for the date-rape drug GHB. Presumably, the UVA freshmen wobbling around us are oblivious to any specific hazards along Rugby Road; having just arrived on campus, they can hardly tell one fraternity from another. As we pass another frat house, one of my guides offers, “I know a girl who got assaulted there.”

Rape on Campus

Frats are often the sole option for an underage drinker looking to party, since bars are off-limits, sororities are dry and first-year students don’t get many invites to apartment soirees. Instead, the kids crowd the walkways of the big, anonymous frat houses, vying for entry. “Hot girls who are drunk always get in – it’s a good idea to act drunker than you really are,” says third-year Alexandria Pinkleton, expertly clad in the UVA-after-dark uniform of a midriff-baring sleeveless top and shorts. “Also? You have to seem very innocent and vulnerable. That’s why they love first-year girls.”

Once successfully inside the frat house, women play the role of grateful guests in unfamiliar territory where men control the variables. In dark, loud basements, girls accept drinks, are pulled onto dance floors to be ground and groped and, later, often having lost sight of their friends, led into bathrooms or up the stairs for privacy. Most of that hooking up is consensual. But against that backdrop, as psychologist David Lisak discovered, lurk undetected predators. Lisak’s 2002 groundbreaking study of more than 1,800 college men found that roughly nine out of 10 rapes are committed by serial offenders, who are responsible for an astonishing average of six rapes each. None of the offenders in Lisak’s study had ever been reported. Lisak’s findings upended general presumptions about campus sexual assault: It implied that most incidents are not bumbling, he-said-she-said miscommunications, but rather deliberate crimes by serial sex offenders.

In his study, Lisak’s subjects described the ways in which they used the camouflage of college as fruitful rape-hunting grounds. They told Lisak they target freshmen for being the most naïve and the least-experienced drinkers. One offender described how his party-hearty friends would help incapacitate his victims: “We always had some kind of punch. . . . We’d make it with a real sweet juice. It was really powerful stuff. The girls wouldn’t know what hit them.” Presumably, the friends mixing the drinks did so without realizing the offender’s plot, just as when they probably high-fived him the next morning, they didn’t realize the behavior they’d just endorsed. That’s because the serial rapist’s behavior can look ordinary at college. “They’re not acting in a vacuum,” observes Lisak of predators. “They’re echoing that message and that culture that’s around them: the objectification and degradation of women.”

One need only glance around at some recent college hijinks to see spectacular examples of the way the abasement of women has broken through to no-holds-barred misogyny: a Dartmouth student’s how-to-rape guide posted online this past January; Yale pledges chanting “No means yes! Yes means anal!” And despite its air of mannered civility, UVA has been in on the naughty fun for at least 70 years with its jolly fight song “Rugby Road,” which celebrates the sexual triumphs of UVA fraternity men, named for the very same street where my guides and I are now enveloped in a thickening crowd of wasted first-years. Through the decades, the song has expanded to 35 verses, with the more recent, student-penned stanzas shedding the song’s winking tone in favor of something more jarringly explicit:

A hundred Delta Gammas, a thousand AZDs

Ten thousand Pi Phi bitches who get down on their knees

But the ones that we hold true, the ones that we hold dear

Are the ones who stay up late at night, and take it in the rear.

In 2010, “Rugby Road” was banned from football games – despite a petition calling it “an integral part” of UVA culture. But Wahoos fearing the loss of tradition can take heart that “Rugby Road” verses are still performed on campus by UVA’s oldest a cappella group, the Virginia Gentlemen.

At the end of her freshman year, Jackie found herself in the Peabody Hall office of Dean Nicole Eramo, head of UVA’s Sexual Misconduct Board. This was a big step for Jackie. She still hadn’t even managed to tell her own mother exactly what had happened at Phi Kappa Psi. Upon returning to school for her second semester, Jackie had tried to put on a brave face and simply move forward, but instead continued falling apart. Though a psychiatrist had put Jackie on Wellbutrin, she had remained depressed, couldn’t concentrate, and spent the semester so frightened and withdrawn that her academic dean finally called her in to discuss why she’d failed three classes. In his office, with her mother beside her, she’d burst into tears, and her mother explained she’d had a “bad experience” at a party. He’d blanched and given Jackie the e-mail for Dean Eramo.

If Dean Eramo was surprised at Jackie’s story of gang rape, it didn’t show. A short woman with curly dark hair and a no-nonsense demeanor, Eramo surely has among the most difficult jobs at UVA. As the intake person on behalf of the university for all sexual-assault complaints since 2006, it’s her job to deal with a parade of sobbing students trekking in and out of her office. (UVA declined to make Eramo available for comment.) A UVA alum herself, Eramo is beloved by survivors, who consider her a friend and confidante – even though, as only a few students are aware, her office isn’t a confidential space at all. Each time a new complaint comes through Eramo’s office, it activates a review by UVA’s Title IX officer, is included in UVA’s tally of federally mandated Clery Act crime statistics, and Eramo may, at her discretion, reveal details of her conversation with the student to other administrators. (Jackie was mortified to learn later that Eramo had shared her identity with another UVA administrator.) After all, a dean’s foremost priority is the overall safety of the campus.

JACKIE SAYS WHEN SHE ASKED WHY UVA’S RAPE STATS WERE HARD TO FIND, THE DEAN SAID, “BECAUSE NOBODY WANTS TO SEND THEIR DAUGHTER TO THE RAPE SCHOOL.”

When Jackie finished talking, Eramo comforted her, then calmly laid out her options. If Jackie wished, she could file a criminal complaint with police. Or, if Jackie preferred to keep the matter within the university, she had two choices. She could file a complaint with the school’s Sexual Misconduct Board, to be decided in a “formal resolution” with a jury of students and faculty, and a dean as judge. Or Jackie could choose an “informal resolution,” in which Jackie could simply face her attackers in Eramo’s presence and tell them how she felt; Eramo could then issue a directive to the men, such as suggesting counseling. Eramo presented each option to Jackie neutrally, giving each equal weight. She assured Jackie there was no pressure – whatever happened next was entirely her choice.

Like many schools, UVA has taken to emphasizing that in matters of sexual assault, it caters to victim choice. “If students feel that we are forcing them into a criminal or disciplinary process that they don’t want to be part of, frankly, we’d be concerned that we would get fewer reports,” says associate VP for student affairs Susan Davis. Which in theory makes sense: Being forced into an unwanted choice is a sensitive point for the victims. But in practice, that utter lack of guidance can be counterproductive to a 19-year-old so traumatized as Jackie was that she was contemplating suicide. Setting aside for a moment the absurdity of a school offering to handle the investigation and adjudication of a felony sex crime – something Title IX requires, but which no university on Earth is equipped to do – the sheer menu of choices, paired with the reassurance that any choice is the right one, often has the end result of coddling the victim into doing nothing.

“This is an alarming trend that I’m seeing on campuses,” says Laura Dunn of the advocacy group SurvJustice. “Schools are assigning people to victims who are pretending, or even thinking, they’re on the victim’s side, when they’re actually discouraging and silencing them. Advocates who survivors love are part of the system that is failing to address sexual violence.”

Rape on Campus

Absent much guidance, Jackie would eventually wonder how other student victims handled her situation. But when she clicked around on UVA’s website, she found no answers. All she found were the UVA police’s crime logs, which the university makes available online, but are mostly a list of bike theft, vandalism and public-drunkenness complaints. That’s because only a fraction of UVA students who report sex crimes turn to campus police. The rest go to Dean Eramo’s office, to Charlottesville police or the county sheriff’s office. Yet when RS asked UVA for its statistics, the press office repeatedly referred us to the UVA police crime logs. UVA parent Susan Russell believes that misdirection is deliberate. “When a parent goes to the campus crime log, and they don’t see sexual assault, they think the school is safe,” Russell says, adding that her daughter’s 2004 sexual assault once appeared in the log mislabeled “Suspicious Circumstances.”

Eventually, UVA furnished Rolling Stone with some of its most recent tally: In the last academic year, 38 students went to Eramo about a sexual assault, up from about 20 students three years ago. However, of those 38, only nine resulted in “complaints”; the other 29 students evaporated. Of those nine complaints, four resulted in Sexual Misconduct Board hearings. UVA wasn’t willing to disclose their outcomes, citing privacy. Like most colleges, sexual-assault proceedings at UVA unfold in total secrecy. Asked why UVA doesn’t publish all its data, President Sullivan explains that it might not be in keeping with “best practices” and thus may inadvertently discourage reporting. Jackie got a different explanation when she’d eventually asked Dean Eramo the same question. She says Eramo answered wryly, “Because nobody wants to send their daughter to the rape school.”

For now, however, Jackie left her first meeting with Eramo feeling better for having unburdened herself, and with the dean’s assurance that nothing would be done without her say-so. Eramo e-mailed a follow-up note thanking Jackie for sharing, saying, “I could tell that was very difficult for you,” and restating that while she respected Jackie’s wish not to file a report, she’d be happy to assist “if you decide that you would like to hold these men accountable.” In the meantime, having presumably judged there to be no threat to public safety, the UVA administration took no action to warn the campus that an allegation of gang rape had been made against an active fraternity.

All the first-year women are morally uptight.

They’ll never do a single thing unless they know it’s right.

But then they come to Rugby Road and soon they’ve seen the light.

And you never know how many men they’ll bring home every night.

“Rugby Road”

You can trace UVA’s cycle of sexual violence and institutional indifference back at least 30 years – and incredibly, the trail leads back to Phi Psi. In October 1984, Liz Seccuro was a 17-year-old virgin when she went to a party at the frat and was handed a mixed drink. “They called it the house special,” she remembers. Things became spotty after Seccuro had a few sips. But etched in pain was a clear memory of a stranger raping her on a bed. She woke up wrapped in a bloody sheet; by rifling through the boy’s mail before fleeing, she discovered his name was Will Beebe. Incredibly, 21 years later, Beebe wrote Seccuro a letter, saying he wanted to make amends as part of his 12-step program. Seccuro took the correspondence to Charlottesville police. And in the midst of the 2006 prosecution that followed, where Beebe would eventually plead guilty to aggravated sexual battery, investigators made a startling discovery: That while at Phi Psi that night, Seccuro had been assaulted not by one man, but by three. “I had been gang-raped,” says Seccuro, who detailed her ordeal in a 2011 memoir.

Rape on Campus

That it took two decades for Seccuro to achieve some justice is even more disgraceful, since she reported her rape to the UVA administration after leaving the Phi Psi house on that 1984 morning. “I went to the dean covered in scabs and with broken ribs,” she remembers. “And he said, ‘Do you think it was just regrettable sex?’ ” Seccuro wanted to call police, but she was incorrectly told Charlottesville police lacked jurisdiction over fraternity houses.

If Seccuro’s story of administrative cover-up and apathy sounds outrageous, it’s actually in keeping with the stories told by other UVA survivors. After one alumna was abducted from a dark, wooded section of campus and raped in 1993, she says she asked a UVA administrator for better lighting. “They told me it would ruin Jefferson’s vision of what the university was supposed to look like,” the alum says. “As if Thomas Jefferson even knew about electric lights!” In 2002 and 2004, two female students, including Susan Russell’s daughter, were unhappy with their sexual-misconduct hearings, which each felt didn’t hold their alleged perpetrators accountable – and each was admonished by UVA administrators to never speak publicly about the proceedings or else they could face expulsion for violating the honor code. For issuing that directive, in 2008 UVA was found in violation of the Clery Act.

“UVA is more egregious than most,” says John Foubert, a UVA dean from 1998 to 2002, and founder of the national male sex-assault peer education group One in Four. “I’ve worked for five or six colleges, and the stuff I saw happen during my time there definitely stands out.” For example, Foubert recalls, in one rare case in which the university applied a harsh penalty, an undergrad was suspended after stalking five students. Heated discussion ensued over whether the boy should be allowed back after his suspension. Though the counseling center wanted him to stay gone, Foubert says, the then-dean of students argued in favor of his return, saying, “We can pick our lawsuit from a potential sixth victim, or from him, for denying him access to an education.”

The few stories leaking out of UVA’s present-day justice system aren’t much better. One student, whose Title IX complaint against UVA is currently under investigation by the Office of Civil Rights, said that in December 2011, another student raped her while she was blackout drunk, possibly drugged. As she wrote in a student publication, evidence emerged that the man had previously been accused of drugging others, but the information was rejected as “prejudicial.” The Sexual Misconduct Board told the young woman it found her “compelling and believable,” but found the man not guilty. “I had never felt so betrayed and let down in my life,” wrote the woman. “They said that they believed me. They said that UVA was my home and that it loved me. Yet, how could they believe me and let him go completely unpunished?”

Rolling Stone has discovered that this past spring a UVA first-year student, whom we’ll call Stacy, filed a report stating that while vomiting up too much whiskey into a male friend’s toilet one night, he groped her, plunged his hands down her sweatpants and then, after carrying her semi-conscious to his bed, digitally penetrated her. When the Charlottesville DA’s office declined to file charges, she says, Stacy asked for a hearing with the Sexual Misconduct Board, and was surprised when UVA authority figures tried to talk her out of it. “My counselors, members of the Dean of Students office, everyone said the trial process would be way too hard on me,” says Stacy. “They were like, ‘You need to focus on your healing.’ ” Stacy insisted upon moving forward anyway, even when the wealthy family of the accused kicked up a fuss. “They threatened to sue deans individually, they threatened to sue me,” she recalls. But Stacy remained stalwart, because she had additional motivation: She’d been shaken to discover two other women with stories of assault by the same man. “One was days after mine, at a rush function at his frat house,” says Stacy. “So I was like, ‘I have to do something before someone else is hurt.’ ” Her determination redoubled after the Dean of Students office informed her that multiple assaults by a student would be grounds for his expulsion – a mantra that Eramo repeated at a Take Back the Night event in April.

JACKIE CAME ACROSS SOMETHING DISTURBING: TWO OTHER YOUNG WOMEN CONFIDED THAT THEY, TOO, HAD BEEN VICTIMS OF PHI KAPPA PSI GANG RAPES.

Bearing her deans’ words in mind, at her nine-hour formal hearing in June, Stacy took pains to present not only her own case, but also the other two allegations, submitting witness statements that were allowed in as “pattern evidence.” The board pronounced the man guilty for sexual misconduct against Stacy, making him only the 14th guilty person in UVA’s history. Stacy was relieved at the verdict. “I was like, ‘He’s gone!’ ‘Cause he’s a multiple assailant, I’d been told so many times that that was grounds for expulsion!” So she was stunned when she learned his actual penalty: a one-year suspension. (Citing privacy laws, UVA would not comment on this or any case.)

Turns out, when UVA personnel speak of expulsion for “multiple assaults,” they mean multiple complaints that are filed with the Sexual Misconduct Board, and then adjudicated guilty. Under that more precise definition, the two other cases introduced in Stacy’s case didn’t count toward his penalty. Stacy feels offended by the outcome and misled by the deans. “After two rapes and an assault, to let him back on grounds is an insult to the honor system that UVA brags about,” she says. “UVA doesn’t want to expel. They were too afraid of getting negative publicity or the pants sued

off them.”

“Rugby Road”

When did it happen to you?” Emily Renda asked Jackie as they sat for coffee at the outdoor Downtown Mall in the fall of 2013.

“September 28th,” Jackie whispered.

“October 7th, 2010,” Emily responded, not breaking her gaze, and Jackie knew she’d found a friend. As Jackie had begun her second year at UVA, she’d continued struggling. Dean Eramo had connected her with Emily, a fourth-year who’d become active in One Less, a student-run sexual-assault education organization that doubles as a support group. Sitting with Emily, Jackie poured out her story, wiping her eyes with napkins as she confided to Emily that she felt like a broken person. “You’re not broken,” Emily told her. “They’re the ones who are fucked up, and what happened to you wasn’t your fault.” Jackie was flooded with gratitude, desperate to hear those words at last – and from someone who knew. Emily invited her to a meeting of One Less, thus introducing her to UVA’s true secret society.

Campus Rape

In its weekly meetings, the 45-member group would discuss how to foster dialogue on campus. Afterward they’d splinter off and share stories of sexual assault, each tale different and yet very much the same. Many took place on tipsy nights with men who refused to stop; some were of sex while blackout drunk; rarer stories involved violence, though none so extreme as Jackie’s. But no matter the circumstances, their peers’ reactions were largely the same: Assaults were brushed off, with attackers defended (“He’d never do anything like that”), the victim questioned (“Are you sure?”). After feeling isolated for more than a year, Jackie was astonished at how much she and this sisterhood had in common, including the fact that a surprising number hadn’t pursued any form of complaint. Although many had contacted Dean Eramo, whom they laud as their best advocate and den mother – Jackie repeatedly calls her “an asset to the community” – few ever filed reports with UVA or with police. Instead, basking in the safety of one another’s company, the members of One Less applauded the brave few who chose to take action, but mostly affirmed each other’s choices not to report, in an echo of their university’s approach. So profound was the students’ faith in its administration that although they were appalled by Jackie’s story, no one voiced questions about UVA’s strategy of doing nothing to warn the campus of gang-rape allegations against a fraternity that still held parties and was rushing a new pledge class.

Some of these women are disturbed by the contradiction. “It’s easy to cover up a rape at a university if no one is reporting,” admits Jackie’s friend Alex Pinkleton. And privately, some of Jackie’s confidantes were outraged. “The university ignores the problem to make itself look better,” says recent grad Rachel Soltis, Jackie’s former roommate. “They should have done something in Jackie’s case. Me and several other people know exactly who did this to her. But they want to protect even the people who are doing these horrible things.”

But no such doubts shadowed the meetings of One Less, which was fine by Jackie. One Less held seminars for student groups on bystander intervention and how to be supportive of survivors. Jackie dove into her new roles as peer adviser and Take Back the Night committee member and began to discover just how wide her secret UVA survivor network was – because the more she shared her story, the more girls sought her out, waylaying her after presentations or after classes, even calling in the middle of the night with a crisis. Jackie has been approached by so many survivors that she wonders whether the one-in-five statistic may not apply in Charlottesville. “I feel like it’s one in three at UVA,” she says.

But payback for being so public on a campus accustomed to silence was swift. This past spring, in separate incidents, both Emily Renda and Jackie were harassed outside bars on the Corner by men who recognized them from presentations and called them “cunt” and “feminazi bitch.” One flung a bottle at Jackie that broke on the side of her face, leaving a blood-red bruise around her eye.

She e-mailed Eramo so they could discuss the attack – and discuss another matter, too, which was troubling Jackie a great deal. Through her ever expanding network, Jackie had come across something deeply disturbing: two other young women who, she says, confided that they, too, had recently been Phi Kappa Psi gang-rape victims.

A bruise still mottling her face, Jackie sat in Eramo’s office in May 2014 and told her about the two others. One, she says, is a 2013 graduate, who’d told Jackie that she’d been gang-raped as a freshman at the Phi Psi house. The other was a first-year whose worried friends had called Jackie after the girl had come home wearing no pants. Jackie said the girl told her she’d been assaulted by four men in a Phi Psi bathroom while a fifth watched. (Neither woman was willing to talk to RS.)

As Jackie wrapped up her story, she was disappointed by Eramo’s nonreaction. She’d expected shock, disgust, horror. For months, Jackie had been assuaging her despair by throwing herself into peer education, but there was no denying her helplessness when she thought about Phi Psi, or about her own alleged assailants still walking the grounds. She’d recently been aghast to bump into Drew, who greeted her with friendly nonchalance. “For a whole year, I thought about how he had ruined my life, and how he is the worst human being ever,” Jackie says. “And then I saw him and I couldn’t say anything.”

“You look different,” Drew told Jackie while she stared back at him in fear, and he was right: Since arriving at UVA, Jackie had gained 25 pounds from antidepressants and lack of exercise. That interaction would render her too depressed to leave her room for days. Of all her assailants, Drew was the one she wanted to see held accountable – but with Drew about to graduate, he was going to get away with it. Because, as she miserably reminded Eramo in her office, she didn’t feel ready to file a complaint. Eramo, as always, understood.

Given the swirl of gang-rape allegations Eramo had now heard against one of UVA’s oldest and most powerful fraternities – founded in 1853, its distinguished chapter members have included President Woodrow Wilson – the school may have wondered about its responsibilities to the rest of the campus. Experts apprised of the situation by RS agreed that despite the absence of an official report, Jackie’s passing along two other allegations should compel the school to take action out of regard for campus safety. “The fact that they already had that first victim, they should have been taking action,” says SurvJustice’s Laura Dunn. “That school could really be sued.”

If the UVA administration was roiled by such concerns, however, it wasn’t apparent this past September, as it hosted a trustees meeting. Two full hours had been set aside to discuss campus sexual assault, an amount of time that, as many around the conference table pointed out, underscored the depth of UVA’s commitment. Those two hours, however, were devoted entirely to upbeat explanations of UVA’s new prevention and response strategies, and to self-congratulations to UVA for being a “model” among schools in this arena. Only once did the room darken with concern, when a trustee in UVA colors – blue sport coat, orange bow tie – interrupted to ask, “Are we under any federal investigation with regard to sexual assault?”

Dean of students Allen Groves, in a blue suit and orange necktie of his own, swooped in with a smooth answer. He affirmed that while like many of its peers UVA was under investigation, it was merely a “standard compliance review.” He mentioned that a student’s complaint from the 2010-11 academic year had been folded into that “routine compliance review.” Having downplayed the significance of a Title IX compliance review – which is neither routine nor standard – he then elaborated upon the lengths to which UVA has cooperated with the Office of Civil Rights’ investigation, his tone and manner so reassuring that the room relaxed.

Told of the meeting, Office of Civil Rights’ Catherine Lhamon calls Groves’ mischaracterization “deliberate and irresponsible.” “Nothing annoys me more than a school not taking seriously their review from the federal government about their civil rights obligations,” she says.

Within days of the board meeting, having learned of Rolling Stone’s probe into Jackie’s story, UVA at last placed Phi Kappa Psi under investigation. Or rather, as President Sullivan carefully answered my question about allegations of gang rape at Phi Psi, “We do have a fraternity under investigation.” Phi Kappa Psi national executive director Shawn Collinsworth says that UVA indeed notified him of sexual assault allegations; he immediately dispatched a representative to meet with the chapter. UVA chapter president Stephen Scipione recalls being only told of a vague, anonymous “fourth-hand” allegation of a sexual assault during a party. “We were not told that it was rape, but rather that something of a sexual nature took place,” he wrote to RS in an e-mail. Either way, Collinsworth says, given the paucity of information, “we have no evidence to substantiate the alleged assaults.”

“Under investigation,” President Sullivan insists when I ask her to elaborate on how the university is handling the case. “I don’t know how else to spell that out for you.” But Jackie may have gotten a glimpse into the extent of the investigation when, in the days following my visit to campus, she was called into Eramo’s office, bringing along her friend Alex for moral support. According to both women, Eramo revealed that she’d learned “through the grapevine” that “all the boys involved have graduated.” Both girls were mystified. Not only had Jackie just seen one of the boys riding his bike on grounds but, as Alex pointed out, “Doesn’t that mean they’re admitting something happened?” No warning has yet been issued to the campus.

With a pocketknife and pepper spray tucked into her handbag, and a rape whistle hanging from her key chain, Jackie is prepared for a Friday night at UVA. In a restaurant on the Corner, Jackie sips water through a straw as the first of the night’s “Whoo!”s reverberate from the sidewalk outside. “It makes me really depressed, almost,” says Jackie with a sad chuckle. “There’s always gonna be another Friday night, and another fraternity party, and another girl.”

Across the table, Alex sighs. “I know,” she says. Bartenders and bouncers all along the Corner are wearing T-shirts advertising the new “Hoos Got Your Back” bystander-intervention campaign, which all seems very hopeful. But this week, the third week of September, has been a difficult one. Charlottesville police received their first sexual-assault report of the academic year; Jackie and Alex were also each approached by someone seeking help about an assault. And as this weekend progresses, things will get far worse at UVA: Two more sexual assaults will be reported to police, and, in every parent’s worst fears come true, an 18-year-old student on her way to a party will vanish; her body will be discovered five weeks later.

Suspect Jesse Matthew Jr., a 32-year-old UVA hospital worker, will be charged with Hannah Graham’s “abduction with intent to defile,” and a chilling portrait will emerge of an alleged predator who got his start, a decade ago, as a campus rapist. Back in 2002, and again in 2003, Matthew was accused of sexual assault at two different Virginia colleges where he was enrolled, but was never prosecuted. In 2005, according to the new police indictment, Matthew sexually assaulted a 26-year-old and tried to kill her. DNA has also reportedly linked Matthew to the 2009 death of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington, who disappeared after a Metallica concert in Charlottesville. The grisly dossier of which Matthew has been accused underscores the premise that campus rape should be seen not through the schema of a dubious party foul, but as a violent crime – and that victims should be encouraged to come forward as an act of civic good that could potentially spare future victims.

Jackie is hoping she will get there someday. She badly wants to muster the courage to file criminal charges or even a civil case. But she’s paralyzed. “It’s like I’m in my own personal prison,” she says. “I’m so terrified this is going to be the rest of my life.” She still cries a lot, and she has been more frightened than usual to be alone or to walk in the dark. When Jackie talks about her assault, she fixates on the moment before Drew picked her up for their date: “I remember looking at the mirror and putting on mascara and being like, ‘I feel really pretty,’ ” Jackie recalls. “I didn’t know it would be the last time I wouldn’t see an empty shell of a person.”

Jackie tells me of a recurring nightmare she’s been having, in which she’s watching herself climb those Phi Kappa Psi stairs. She frantically calls to herself to stop, but knows it’s too late: That in real life, she’s already gone up those stairs and into that terrible room, and things will never be the same. It bothers Jackie to know that Drew and the rest get to walk away as if nothing happened, but that she still walks toward that room every night – and blames herself for it during the day.

“Everything bad in my life now is built around that one bad decision that I made,” she says. “All because I went to that stupid party.”

    Strict gun laws will never happen in America until the myths the NRA uses are dispelled.
    Biggest Myth if you outlaw guns only the criminals will have them that is ludicrous, just look at England or Japan where gun control is extreme no school shooting for over a decade in either country, gun violence is nearly non-existant in both countries…. Myth #2 guns don’t kill people, people kill people. Last year over 193 people were killed by guns that had no person behind the trigger. Either the gun went off unexpectedly oir accidentally or while being cleaned. in all of those cases the gun killed a person. Look at the mother shot by her 3 year old in an iowa walmart, are you going to tell me the three year old knew what he was doing???

      Adam, your rant is just showing your ignorance. Of course the 193 were killed by a gun that had the trigger pulled. Guns don’t discharge without it. If you are not smarter than an inadement object then maybe that piece of metal can outsmart you and shoot you.

    If the people who supported gun control focused their energy on the real problem regarding almost all mass shootings, the sorry state of mental health care in this country, the incidence of mass shootings would likely fall off precipitously. Endeavoring to change the culture in urban America would also have a positive impact on gun violence in this nation. And while any death is tragic, there are any number of ways that people die in needless accidents.

    Dale. NOBODY PULLED THE TRIGGER in those cases the gun went off from falling or from being jostled or for other reasons but NOBODY PULLED the trigger in those cases. The gun killed those people as only the gun and those people were there no other person was there to pull the trigger. Mt neighbor lost his leg in a gun accident 17 yearts ago his shotgun was in the garage leaned against the wall, he was working on his car when the gun slipped, hit the floor, went off and destroyed his kneecap. NOBODY PULLED THE TRIGGER!

Myths will eventually kill all of us.. Now zerofor if I use a knife for it’s given purpose something gets cut. If I use a car for it’s given purpose, something gets from one place to another.

    Adam, I don’t know what you have been smoking but you need to stop.


    In England because homeowners are unarmed and criminals are not afraid,home invasions are common place. The perps often holds the homeowner and his family at knife point and forces them to tell where the valuables are kept.

    There is a knife attack in Britain on average of every 4 minutes. Now they want to ban pointy knives.

    If this sounds like your utopia, then move there.

    Adam 12 hours ago\
    Zerofour. Do you know what the second ammendment actually says?? It is one sentence long and reads ” A well regulated militia being necessary to the common defense, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” Somewhere along our history this got separated into 2 separate idea but in english one sentence = 1 idea. Back when this was written everyone was part of the militia and therefore needed a weapon to stave off the british threat. Now we have a police force and a standing army and this is not necessary.

    Repealing the Second Amendment would require all Americans to have blind faith in their politicians and believe that all elected officials would always put the best interests of the American people first. An instance where President Obama would declare martial law and suspend the 2016 elections, however wildly unlikely, is a concern among people in this country who strongly dislike Obama. And while that scenario would not appear to cause you any great concern if it were to happen, how comfortable would you have been in 2008 if President Bush had done the same such thing as had been feared by people who strongly disliked him?

    The first part of the sentence is a predatory clause that states a purpose. It does not limit the final clause that is the purpose, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

    Now before you go babbling about all regulated and militias, here is your history lesson. A militia is common people, not a standing army. It was intended that every able bodied man be armed and able to help in the common defense.

    Well regulated meant well trained or equipped. It did not in anyway mean that restrictions were to be placed on them.

    You really should educate yourself before you babble on. Start by reading DC vs Heller.

    So, your assumptions about who is trying to change the meaning of the 2nd amendment is wrong. It’s the ones that try to distort its true meaning and purpose. That purpose is to protect the rights of legitimate gun owners.

    Sam, you are delusional and I would love to see you talk live with tsome of the parents from Sandy Hook which you so heartlessly call Sandy Hoax. As I stated in my original post Myths will be the downfall of all of us.You are brainwashed into believing having a gun makes you safer when the fact is gun owners are more than 40% more likely to die in a gun related death. I will not argue any further as once you start quoting conspiracy theories there is no value in this debate.

    Adam, your 40% figure come from a study that has been proven wrong many times. Most recently by a study from the CDC

    Adam, you will have to take your argument for disarmament to my grandmother after the night my grandfather stopped home invaders with his rifle one night. They were violent offenders that believed they could take full advantage of an elderly couple. They were wrong in that assumption just as YOU ARE about not allowing people the effective means to defend themselves. If it were up to people that think like you, my grandparents would have been murdered. That makes you nothing less than a murderer yourself and you can burn in heII.

    RAYMOND, I am sure Jeffrey Giuliano would agree with you, oh wait he thought he was protecting his home at 2 am when his son made some noise in the alley of his home and he shot his son dead. I am about stopping the needless deaths of approximately 10,000 people every year that die because people who have no business owning a firearm own them.

    I will end my part here with this. Saying that more guns= less gun violence is like saying more fire = less heat.

    Zerofour90, your question makes no sense on 2 levels. #1 no matter what firearms you may own do you think you could stop the government from declaring martial law. The government has much more powerful weaponry than you will ever have including drones and missiles. Second the only law that Obama has signed about guns since taking office was a law permitting the carrying of concealed weapons in national parks.

    FY Adam. I don’t care how many cases you want to hold up to support your idiot agenda. According to FBI estimates, many more armed citizens defend themselves and their family successfully from violent offenders than criminals committing offenses with firearms. You are also full of $#lt with your belief that more guns = more violence. There has never been this many guns in the hands of private citizens nor has there been this many citizens with carry permits, yet the rate of gun deaths in the US has been on a steady decline for the last 25 years. Only REPORTING of gun violence is way up. It is very obvious that you don’t have the slightest grasp on reality on a number of levels.

    Adam, twice in the last hour I have responded to your comment and both times my comment has been deleted. Here goes for the third time. You’re wrong on both counts. You’re right, private gun ownership could not prevent legislation authorizing martial law, but it could prevent its imposition. While the government does obviously possess superior weaponry, that advantage is negated by the fact that that weaponry has to be operated by American citizens. Americans who are members of an all volunteer force who all together comprise the most intelligent, educated armed force in the history of the world. They are mercenaries, they are thoughtful, discerning people who would think long and hard before obeying an order from a politician to fire on their own people. There are a great many more people like PFC Manning in the military than you might suspect, although they function within the limits of the law.
