When I was a sophomore in college, our campus looked like a prison. My
classmates and I walked to class between eight-foot tall chain-linked
fences. Security guards patrolled bridges around the Ivy League school.
It was 2010 and, in the last academic year, six students had killed
themselves at Cornell University. Two jumped off bridges into the Ithaca
gorges on consecutive days in March. Classmates anxiously checked in on one
another. Parents panicked. The administration scrambled to maintain a sense
of calm on campus.
