Cornell University says its suicide rate not abnormal
Cornell University in Ithaca, New York says its suicide rate among students is not out of the ordinary even though two have jumped to their deaths this month. The number for the academic year is six. A 19-year-old sophomore and a 21-year-old junior jumped from bridges that criss-cross gorges bounding the campus this month. The four earlier deaths were also jumps from bridges. The Ivy League school maintains its suicide rate over time is normal for college campuses.
