How to stay safe when attending college

As many as 40 percent of U.S. college students are likely to commit violent acts, according to a new report released Tuesday by the National Safety Council.

The report said students who commit serious violent acts are more likely to receive treatment, report the crime and ultimately go to prison.

It said students committing acts of property damage and vandalism are more at risk.

The study was released just days after President Donald Trump signed an executive order calling for more rigorous enforcement of campus safety measures.

It also came as the U.N. Human Rights Council announced it was considering a new round of recommendations on campus violence that would focus on mental health.

In addition to mental health, the report said schools should consider increasing support for victims of violence and help them seek justice.
