Middle and high school are notorious for being difficult. Changing bodies and expectations have been the inspiration for many books, movies and TV shows. These tough times of life have been stereotyped and turned humorous. Bullying in middle school and high school has been considered normal- almost a rite of passage in modern America.

However, in recent decades, the truth about bullying has been pulled forward into our social viewpoints. Bullying is not funny, and it is not okay. It affects everyone involved negatively. Most of this effort has been focused on elementary, middle school and high school bullying. However, what about college?

Bullying in college is a very real issue, though it is not necessarily called bullying. Terms such as hazing, harassment and stalking are used to describe some bullying in campus settings. Cyber bullying is a very prevalent issue recently. However, it doesn’t matter how it is termed- bullying in any setting isn’t okay. In fact, most of these types of harassment are illegal and can lead to police action.

If you feel like you are being bullied, be sure to tell someone you trust- although your parents may not be around, talk to a mentor or professor. They will be able to help you find the best way to deal with the situation. You should never be bullied without taking action- no one deserves such treatment.
