Seven women filed a lawsuit against Dartmouth College, on Thursday, alleging they experienced sexual assault, harassment, and discrimination by professors at the school — and that the Ivy League school in Hanover, New Hampshire, did not “protect” its students.

The suit, filed at the US District Court in New Hampshire, alleges “Dartmouth College has knowingly permitted three of its prominent (and well funded) professors to turn a human behavior research department into a 21st Century Animal House.”
