The University of Hawaii is a place of higher learning but some students are also getting a harsh life lesson because of rapes and other sex crimes committed on campus.
Many find the University of Hawaii at Manoa campus to be a quiet one.
But the security team's "top cop" Alberta Pukahi said it is too quiet when it comes to reporting sex assaults.
"Students are reluctant to report. I think if awareness and education was higher the numbers would also be higher, they'd be willing to report," said Pukahi.
For 2010 and so far this year, only two dozen sex offenses have been reported.
According to federal reports, that is not a lot for a campus this size.
Many students do feel safe walking around, even at night.
"I usually feel pretty safe cause we have the stacks with the phone and we have the campus escort," said UH senior Elena Chen.
There are over 60 of the "stacks" -- stations that can alert security to any kind of personal emergency. Concerned students can also be escorted at night, or even seek a ride across campus.
While campus security is usually notified of other crimes like assaults or robberies, traditionally sex assaults are vastly under-reported.
