Abstract

Previous research on bullying on college campuses has shown that victims often suffer from anxiety, depression and a low sense of self-worth. Student bullying has been defined as being exposed repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more other students. This study investigates the extent of bullying on a college campus, the types of bullying, and the consequences of the negative actions. Data were collected from face to face interviews with college students who have been bullied, and students who have witnessed someone else being bullied. A questionnaire distributed to 144 students at Western Oregon University was also analyzed. The results show that women and Hispanic/Latino students are more likely to be bullied. Cyberbully was the most common form of bullying and most students who reported being bullied, did not seek help. The most common response to be bullied was depression and sadness.
