Violence on campuses increasingly manifest in a larger number of random assaults, group fights, mass shootings, flash-mob crimes, and vicious one-on-one attacks. Since March, about four women were charged for the murder of other female students. Crime gradually characterizes the modern college experience. Despite security provided, crime and violence rates increased on school campuses.
The number of cases increased from 40 during the 1980s to 79 in the 1990s and 83 since 2000. The reason for the increase remains unknown. However, the increase in crime rate occurred in college student enrollment within the previous 20 years. The arrests of females increased more than the arrest of males in the majority of the crime categories between 1991 and 2000. In 2005, there were 2.1 million females of 14 million total juvenile arrests. Girls made up one-third of juvenile arrests and 18 percent of violent offenses. Arrest for simple assaults among girls increased by 24 percent between 1996 and 2005, while arrests for boys for similar crimes decreased.

Then, alumni will experience immense terror, making them dread going to class or even avoid attending school all together.
Students targeted by violators may lose self-esteem. They may also undergo depression or anxiety due to the traumatic events. The students involved in violent activities become a nuisance to other students. They may also fail out of school and end up ruining their futures.
