The Rape Advocacy Counseling and Education Services center, better known as RACES, is a small organization that helps victims of sexual assault.
It's hotline is run by volunteers, and when students come back to campus, the calls start pouring in.
Kerri True-Funk, the organization's executive director, says 20% of the hotline's call volume is related to college students.
She says that's why their numbers jump when students move back into town.
However, there is a bright side to students returning--it helps beef up RACES volunteer base, meaning there are more people around to help the victims.
