Every week, Syracuse University professor Aileen Gallagher helps Longreads highlight the best of college journalism. Here’s this week’s pick:

Rape on college campuses draws outrage, but rarely enough media coverage. Tyler Jett’s story about a serial offender in Gainesville is told with a balance of sensitivity and skill. Jett interviewed survivors, advocates, and police officials in an effort to explain why one man could hurt so many women and get away with it. Jett, a recent graduate of the University of Florida’s journalism school, now writes for the Chattanooga Times Free Press.
