A federal discrimination complaint against the University Of Connecticut has students reacting.

Several current and former students, who filed the complaint, accused UConn and its campus police of not doing enough about their cries of rape.

One complainant said she was told the university expelled the classmate she accused of rape, but then wasn’t told later that he was back on campus.

Despite the complaint, students we spoke with, like freshman Nicole Smirnov, said they get a solid education at UConn about right and wrong, from the very beginning.

“During orientation, a huge chunk of it was about rape, and just ways to talk about it if it happened, and places you can go, and who can help you, and that was honestly like 75% of our orientation,” Smirnov said.
