Amherst Sweeps Sexual Assault Allegations Under the Rug. I read something from a girl who goes to Amherst and was raped. In short, they almost kicked her out of the school and didn't allow her to graduate. They didn't press charges against the guy, and he got to graduate. It's so sad to think that our culture tells women not to get raped, instead of telling men not to rape. How can anyone actually think like that?
