Vice President for Administration James Ritterskamp told The Miscellany News that the college had requested that the Town of Poughkeepsie patrol the campus more regularly in an effort to “beef up security.”   Demands for increased security came after two Poughkeepsie Day School students were sexually assaulted by the Vassar golf course in May of 1979. However, despite the increased security, on September 23, a 16 year-old girl was attacked on campus.
